He might have starred in a film called Dumb and Dumber To but Jim Carrey himself is anything but. In this inspiring speech, Carrey talks to the 2014 graduating class from Maharshi University about being brave enough to reach for exactly what you want because, as he puts it, ‘You can fail at what you don’t want so you might as well take a chance on doing what you LOVE’.
It starts to get really interesing from about 10:12 when Carrey talks about how we allow fear to control us far too much.
‘So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality.’
No doubt a lot can relate to that! Ever hear the saying, ‘Fortune favours the bold’? Sign up for that Salsa Class! Get that promotion at work! Ask that cute guy out today! Nothing will happen if you shy away.
