Jim Carrey might have made a career out of his funny lines and even funnier faces, but on Saturday he took a moment for some serious reflection while speaking to graduates at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.
In the speech, the comedian dared graduates to ask the universe for big things.
“Fear is going to be a player in life, but you get to decide how much,” Carrey said. “So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it.”
Carey also talked about the lessons he drew from his father about about pursuing one’s dreams.
