Words of Wisdom: “Do What You Love”-Jim Carrey

Happy to share this Words of Wisdom video with you all to give you some encouragement today!

In a commencement speech at the Maharishi University of Management, Jim Carrey dropped some knowledge about the importance of He even used his own father as an example. His dad wanted to be a comedian but didn’t see how that would be possible, so he settled into a life of accounting. Not that there’s anything wrong with accounting, but what’s wrong is choosing a life you don’t really want just to be safe, and not believe you can have what you want. “So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality,” Jim acknowledged. “What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it.” We don’t pursue the life we really want and end up getting stuck in a life that gives us no joy or purpose.

Does that sound like you? I know I can relate! A lot of us settle into comfortable positions in life out of straight fear that what we really want can’t sustain us, or might fail. I don’t know about y’all, but I’d rather fail at attempting to do what I love than spending every week wishing for Friday for the next however many years! That’s not living.
