High school and college graduation are times in a young person’s life when they feel they can take on the world. The graduating class of the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa had a special guest at their ceremony and they received advice they’ll remember forever.
Actor Jim Carrey was the guest speaker at their graduation ceremony and he inspired everyone. In his speech, Jim Carrey shared how his late father inspired him to follow his dreams, even when the path seemed uncertain or risky. He emphasized the importance of taking risks and not being afraid of failure, as it is through failure that we learn and grow. While many people are afraid of chasing their dreams, he provided a message of hope that they can become a reality if we try.

Carrey’s message of hope and encouragement was well-received by the graduating class and has resonated with many people since. He reminded us that we all have unique talents and passions and that it is up to us to pursue them, even in the face of obstacles or naysayers.
Later in life when people are asked what they regretted in life if anything, they usually don’t regret the risks they took. They regret the risks they didn’t take. Carrey’s speech is a powerful reminder that we should never be afraid to chase our dreams and to take chances in life, even if it means stepping outside of our comfort zones.
Carrey’s message has continued to inspire people long after the graduation ceremony ended, and you can view the entire Commencement Address from the 2014 MUM Graduation on Maharishi University’s YouTube Channel.
