The Touching Jim Carrey Commencement Speech Discusses Doing What You Love

The Jim Carrey commencement speech at Maharishi University of Management offers many insightful words of wisdom for the graduating glass, while containing many references to the school's Ayurvedic teachings.

The Jim Carrey commencement speech is peppered with the comedian's characteristic humor, but also acknowledges the role fear plays in life. However, one does get to choose how much fear will factor in. He notes all the decisions people make are based in either fear or love. According to the actor, too many choose their paths out of fear disguised as practicality because often what they really want seems too impossible and ridiculous to expect to even bother asking the universe for it.

The Jim Carrey commencement speech also shares a lesson he learned from his father, which is "you can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love." He then encourages the graduating class to consider what the world needs that their talent can provide. Stats for Spiritual Life Lessons Trending: Older & Average
