Jim Carrey was born in Canada in the ’60s make his mother laugh, trying to make her happy While, his father worked as an accountant, working in a safe job to support the family His father wanted to be a musician, but had given up his dream as it was not practical.
Everything was going fine, until one day his father lost his job His father tried getting a new job but was not able to find any Months passed by, they got homeless, lived in a van He was only 15 then; he started working in a steel factory.
To support his family His whole future was in front of him, he thought he will become a steel mill worker No other dreams were allowed But at that time, seeing his father struggle, he learnt his life’s most valuable lesson His father had given up his dream, gone for a safer option and still failed If failure and success are not certain in anything you do.
Why not take a chance and do something that you love doing Even if you fail, at least you will be doing what you love He realised, he loves making people laugh and he wants to do that for the rest of his life He wants to become an Actor and a Stand-up comic.
So when he turned 16, his father took him to his first stand-up performance But that first performance was a big failure, no one laughed He got disappointed, he doubted himself But he knew, he was doing something he loved, he just has to work harder So he practised more, tried harder And soon his performance improved, next time he got a standing ovation.
As time passed by Jim Carrey kept on dreaming big, he wanted to be an Actor So he moved to America, to follow his dream Months passed, he gave few auditions but got no work Still, he was hopeful Every night he used to look at the Hollywood sign and imagine, Directors approaching him, signing him for a movie, fans surrounding him for an autograph.
At that time he had nothing else, just his thoughts and dreams He kept on thinking that success was around the corner One day, he wrote a post-dated cheque to himself for $10 million.
He dated it 5 years later, and promised to himself he will this money before that date He believed he is asking the universe what he wants And sometime later the universe did give him, what he desired Soon he became an actor.
And a few years later he received $10 million pay for acting in a movie That movie was the worldwide hit Dumb and Dumber, And that little boy from Canada is now one of the most successful actors in the world, Jim Carrey.
Jim Carrey was just an ordinary kid, who could have probably become a factory worker But he thought big; he dreamt becoming successful and worked hard to achieve it It can also happen to us, We just we get scared to think big Our mind says it’s not practical, we doubt ourselves, our abilities.
We think, we cannot achieve what others have Why not for today, let’s keep the practical mind aside; Let’s think big for today I have written below my target, TheFilmyCut. Don’t worry what people will think, how it will sound, will it sound stupid Just write something you desire.
