Jim Carrey - Bringing Your Talent To The World
By Shaun Cooper, Director, Lighthouse International
“The effect you have on people is the most valuable currency there is!"
- Jim Carrey
Inspiring words of wisdom from Jim Carrey about our lives, our talent and purpose. He shares his purpose in life is to free people from concern and to help people present their best selves! Easy for someone whose done exceptionally well right? The key is that he made some fundamental realisations that changed and shaped his life forever. He risked what others thought of him, he risked being a failure and choose to take a chance on doing what he loved!
He encourages us to ask, "how can you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide?”
Instead of playing the game of pleasing everyone, we need to find real joy by letting the armour go and realising we can bring our talent to the world. Why would we play small?
"Our need for acceptance can make us invisible in the world. Risk being seen in all your glory.”
We have two motivations in life - love or fear. Which one will motivate you? Choose wisely because it determines our experience of life and what we produce and receive.
"You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
