JIM CARREY ON PURSUING YOUR DREAMS

Jim Carrey discusses the importance of doing what you love at a collegiate commencement ceremony. His message becomes very clear at the end of this short video: "you can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love."

220 ACTION:

  1. Find someone that absolutely loves what they do for work. Ask your friends, parents, relatives, and teachers to help you find this person.
  2. Get in contact with this person and set up a time to meet with them or talk with them on the phone.
  3. Ask them the following questions and write down your answers:

  • Why do you love what you do?
  • How did you get to where you are today?
  • What obstacles did you experience and how did you overcome them?
  • What advice would you have for me to be successful at my dream job?
