“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
― Jim Carrey
In more recent years, Jim Carrey has blossomed as far as how open he is about things that need to be said. Tons of videos of him speaking out on different issues have been making rounds online for quite some time and I am loving them. He clearly has a lot of things worth paying attention to that he wants to share with the world.
I recently came across one video that really stood out to me above the rest. It was quite touching and really made me question a lot of things. This is a speech that could benefit us all, it seems to have been spoken with the intent of evoking positive change in the lives of those who found it.
While most of us want to change the world most of us never take any steps to do so. We want to make an impact but we don’t. We spend our lives wasting away and waiting for others to do the things we really wish that we could do. This is no way to live.
We don’t have to live like this. We can be the change we want to see. We can answer all the questions of life from within if we really want to. Life is too short to spend it working our lives away and never having anything to show for it. Why not break free and be who we want to be? Is the status quo that intense? Hell no it is not.
If we all spent more time being who we wanted to be and following our hearts, the world would be a much better place. Helping others and living life to the fullest should be a given but for some reason, in current times they are not. Why is this? Why aren’t we doing the things that we should be doing? Why are we letting ourselves just waste away?
Please take the time to listen to Carrey speak in the video below and do so with an open mind. Really take in the things he is saying and let them speak to you on a deeper level. There is nothing wrong with questioning things. The more you actually think, the better. We live our lives in fear of being our true selves and that has got to stop.
I really hope this speech touches you in the ways that it has touched me. Carrey is truly an inspirational individual and I cannot wait to see what else he has to say in the years to come. While the things he says are not things we all want to hear they are things that bring awareness to things that matter. The truth is hard to hear sometimes but it still needs to be heard. Don’t let fear control you, speak the things that need to be spoken.
