The Meaning – Jim Carrey

Absolute Motivation edited together some of the best parts of Jim Carrey’s Commencement Address at the 2014 MUM Graduation. He was introduced the the graduation class as ‘the funniest man on earth‘ and ‘a performer of legendary comic genius’. The speech he gave however is much more the a simple stand-up or act.

He starts the powerful speech by telling them: “I’m here to plant a seed today, a seed that will inspire you to move forward in life with enthusiastic hearts and a clear sense of wholeness.”

Having overcoming depression and other battles in his life we found his journey and story most inspiring.

Throughout his moving speech he delivers some powerful lines which will stay with us: “Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. You will only ever have two choices, love or fear. Choose love, and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart. ”


If you have some more time to spare we really recommend you watch the full speech below:
