The great Jim Carrey graces us with some excellent words of wisdom for any aspiring creative. Watch it in its entirety and enjoy.

My father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant, and when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that ‘safe’ job, and my family had to do whatever we could to survive.

I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.
