When you think of Jim Carrey, you think funny.  Classics like The Mask and Ace Ventura usually come to mind.

It's hard to picture him putting on a serious face to give one heluva commencement speech but he did.  Calling it compelling and inspirational would be an understatement.  Have you ever listened to someone and felt like they were talking directly to YOU and nobody else?  That's the feeling you'll get if you watch his speech.

Whether you're a high school graduate, a college graduate or just an everyday joe who wonders... "What if?"  -- You should watch the clip above or even the entire speech below.  The clip above features one of the best moments of the speech.  and if you take away nothing else, remember this line.

"You can fail at what you don't want. So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love." - Jim Carrey

Below is the entire speech.
