Pico Iyer on the Benefits of Staying Still

Travel writer Pico Iyer has made a career out of traveling to far-off corners of the world in search of a story. In this TED Talk, he shuns that globetrotting reputation in favor of staying put.  

“I found that the best way that I could develop more attentive and more appreciative eyes was, oddly, by going nowhere; just by sitting still,” he says. “And of course sitting still is how many of us get what we most crave and need in our accelerated lives—a break—but it was also the only way that I could find to sift through the slideshow of my experience and make sense of the future and the past.”

Will you take Iyer’s advice and plan a stillcation?

A Nobel Peace Prize Winner’s Thoughts on Fear

Bravery is a hard thing to muster in the face of fear, but that’s why the story of Malala Yousafzai is so inspiring. By age 11, Yousafzai was speaking out against the Taliban rule in her homeland of Pakistan. For years she demanded an education for all children, regardless of race, gender or religion, and in 2012 her bravery was answered with a gunman’s bullet to her head. 

Yousafzai has since recovered, won the Nobel Peace Prize, and has maintained her signature bravery, despite “feeling fear all the time,” she says in this video.

“I think life is always dangerous,” she says. “Some people get afraid of it, some people don’t go forward. But some people, if they want to achieve their goal, they have to go.”

We chose Malala Yousafzai as one of our 2014 SUCCESS Achiever of the Year runners-up. Find out who else achieved great things in 2014.
