Comedy actor, Jim Carrey, delivered an inspiring speech to the Class 0f 2014 at Maharishi University of Management. Up at the podium, he talked about the future, careers, risks, dreams, and failures. Showing his more serious side, he narrated the story of his father’s safe choices and broken dreams; and the inspiration derived from the kind of life his father lived.
He mentions the importance of being brave enough to take a risk on yourself and your dreams and to not let fear stop you; advising and inspiring students to go after what they really want. “You can fail at what you don’t want; so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
