#36alive 22: Sunday Night Insight | Jim Carrey Commencement Address

“Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or stay afraid of taking them”

Jim Carrey is arguably one of the most famous actors in the world with his highly successful career, mainly in comedic roles. Having stumbled across his 2014 Commencement Speech at the Maharishi University of Management, I was surprised to hear what he had to say with regards to how and why he has been so successful, and how being as famous as he is isn’t really all it cracked up to be, with him realising he can find happiness from within rather than from the fame he accrued.

I have no idea how many times I have watched this 26 minute video or sent it to someone else to watch it, so if you have the time, or even if you don’t, make the time to watch and enjoy it.
