Why Jim Carrey Wrote Himself a Cheque for $10 Million

"If you aren't in the moment, you are either looking forward to uncertainty, or back to pain and regret."
- Jim Carrey
Success takes hard work. Every legend has shown us this. But that hard work isn’t just in what we do, it starts with working hard on what we believe is possible. Here is a brilliant story of actor Jim Carrey achieving an incredible level of success early on in his career by starting with a powerful vision!
Sometimes we give up on our dreams right at the last minute, but as Jim shared in this video, his goal came true just a few days before the timeframe he had set himself. Why didn’t he give up? Because he knew he had to persist with his dream. It was the combination of the visualisation and the self-discipline he had as an actor every day - not every now and then - that ensured he achieved his goal. One without the other just wouldn’t have worked.
