Jim Carrey Leaves the Audience SPEECHLESS | One of the Best Motivational Speeches Ever


[Applause] my father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him and so he made a conservative choice instead he got a safe job as an accountant and when I was 12 years old he was let go from that safe job and our family had to do whatever we could to survive I learned many great lessons from my father not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love it’s not the only thing he taught me though you know I watched the effect of my father’s love and humor and how it altered the world around me and I thought that’s something to do that’s something worth my time it wasn’t long before I started acting up you know people would come over to the house and they’d be greeted by a seven-year-old throwing himself down a large flight of stairs they would say what happened and I would say I don’t know let’s check the replay I’d go back to the top of the stairs and come back down in slow motion it was a very strange household my father used to brag that I wasn’t a ham I was the whole pig and he treated my talent as if it was his second chance when I was about 28 after a decade as a professional comedian I realized one night in LA that the purpose of my life had always been to free people from concern just like my dad and when I realized this I dubbed my new devotion the Church of freedom from concern the Church of FFC and I dedicated myself to that ministry what’s yours how will you serve the world what do they need that your talent can provide that’s all you have to figure out as someone who’s done what you’re about to go and do I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is because everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart am i choosing to free people am i choosing to free people from concern got me to the top of a mountain look where I am look what I get to do everywhere I go look this I’m gonna get emotional because when I tap into this it really is extraordinary to me I did something that made people present their best selves to me wherever I go I’ve often said that I wished people could realize all their dreams and wealth and fame and so that they could see that it’s not where you’re gonna find your sense of completion like many of you I was concerned about going out into the world and doing something bigger than myself until someone smarter than myself made me realize that there is nothing bigger than myself because life doesn’t happen to you it happens for you how do I know this I don’t but I’m making sound and that’s the important thing that’s what I’m here to do sometimes I think that’s the only thing that’s important really you know it’s just letting each other know we’re here reminding each other that we’re part of a larger self your job is not to figure out how it’s gonna happen for you but to open the door in your head and when the door opens in real life just walk through it and don’t worry if you miss your cue because there’s always doors opening they keep opening and when I say life doesn’t happen to you it happens for you I really don’t know if that’s true I’m just making a conscious choice to perceive challenges as something beneficial so that I can deal with them in the most productive way you’ll come up with your own style that’s part of the fun oh and why not take a chance on faith as well not religion but faith not hope but faith I don’t believe in hope hope is the beggar hope walks through the fire and faith leaps over it I used to believe that who I was ended at the answer my skin that I had been given this little vehicle called a body from which to experience creation and though I couldn’t have asked for a sporty or model it was after all a loner and would have to be returned then I learned that everything outside the vehicle was part of me too and now I Drive a convertible top down win to my hair I am elated and truly truly truly excited to be present and fully connected to you at this important moment in your journey I hope you’re ready to open the roof and take it all in you are the vanguard of knowledge and consciousness a new wave in a vast ocean of possibilities on the other side of that door there’s a world starving for new ideas new leadership I’ve been out there for thirty years she’s a wildcat she’ll rub up against your leg and purr until you pick her up and start petting her and then out of nowhere she’ll swatch on the face it can be rough out there but that’s okay because there’s soft-serve ice cream with sprinkles I guess that’s what I’m really trying to say here today sometimes it’s okay to eat your feelings now fear is going to be a player in your life but you get to decide how much you can spend your whole life imagining ghosts worrying about the pathway to the future but all there will ever be is what’s happening here in the decisions we make in this moment which are based in either love or fear so many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality what we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never dare to ask the universe for it I’m saying I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it [Applause] [Music] I am at the top of the mountain and I was and I the only the only one I hadn’t freed was myself and that’s when my search for identity deepened I wondered who might be without my fame who would I be if I said things that people didn’t want to hear or if I defied their expectations of me and that piece that piece that we’re after lies somewhere beyond personality beyond the perception of others beyond invention and disguise even beyond effort itself you can join the game fight the wars play with form all you want but to find real peace you have to let the armor go your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world don’t let anything stand in the way of the light that shines through this form risk being seen in all of your glory my soul is not contained within the limits of my body my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul now I’m always at the beginning I have a reset button and I ride that button constantly once that button is functioning in your life there’s no story that the mind could create that will be as compelling the imagination is always manufacturing scenarios both good and bad and the ego tries to keep you trapped in the multiplex of the mind our eyes are not viewers they are also projectors that are running a second story over the picture that we see in front of us all the time fear is writing that script and the working title is I’ll never be enough I had a substitute teacher from Ireland in the second grade they told my class during morning prayer that when she wants something anything at all she prays for it and promises something in return and she always gets what she wants before I’m sitting in the back of classroom you know thinking wow my family can’t afford a bike you know so I went home and I pray for and I promised I would recite the Rosary every night in exchange broke it broke that promise but two weeks later I got home from school to find a brand-new Mustang bike with a banana seat and Easy Rider handlebars yeah from fool to cool my family informed me that I had won the bike in a raffle that a friend of mine had entered my name in without any of my knowledge whatsoever so that type of thing has been happening to me ever since as far as I can tell it’s just about letting the universe know what you want and working toward it while letting go of how it comes to pass no matter what you gain ego will not let you rest it will tell you that you cannot stop until you’ve left an indelible mark on the earth until you’ve achieved immortality how tricky is this ego that it would tempt us with the promise of something we already possess relax and dream up a good life [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] you

  1. my goal in life is to have a wife and kids but i want to build an empire and live like a king but i want to help others live like kings i want my kids to have a bright future when i'm gone and for others kids to have a bright future

  2. I've read thru the comments and wanted to share. I spent 30years lost, confused, not understanding life, and depressed always chasing the dollar with good jobs. I was never happy. I decided to randomly pick up a bible but i didn't know where to start or anything. I didn't know any Christians so I was on my own. I ended up reading the new testament in the bible, which was about 250pages because the old testament was too long like 650pages lol. Next thing I knew I was actually reading the new testament slowly and highlighting bible verses. There was so much knowledge I couldn't believe it, and almost all of my questions I've had my whole life were answered in the bible in the new testament alone. Over the next few months I finished the entire bible, and it changed me for the better. I have a new outlook on life, and my family and friends even see a difference in me. I encourage everyone to try to read the bible, it's definatly an eye opener…If I can open the bible anyone can for sure

  3. Just sad to me Jim…. with sooo much intelligence and insight into being human, and yet you just dismissed the real whole answer….you said it twice! Life Does happen FOR us! For us God gave us humanity… FOR us God gave us His Son so we could have everlasting life! I am praying for you to hear Him… he is calling you! God loves you!

  4. We used to love politicians and laugh at comedians, now we love comedians and laugh at politicians….

  5. Jim just paraphrases other philosophers words. He speaks nothing new that isn’t already out there. A lot of these people who claim to be enlightened or full of wisdom on here who claim to know it all are just parrots of what has been told for century’s. Jim is nothing special apart from barking mad in my opinion.

  6. There is no meaning of life STOP LOOKING FOR ONE you will never ever find that out silly! It is not a context it is a reality and you can only feel and experience life. The meaning of life is life itself it is an infinite moment with no beginning or end. It is a happening. So blindingly obvious staring everyone in the face, literally! You are that, that is you! Stupid human egos looking for an answer to what is so obvious. That empty blankness behind your eyes is what you are, (pure consciousness – the void) the ego is an illusion painted on that blank canvas. The ego trying to work out why we are here or the meaning of life is just LOL on a vast scale. All this unnecessary seeking is draining your energy, seeking reassurance for the obvious has always puzzled me about human beings. You didn’t come from anywhere nor do you go anywhere after you die (ego illusion) you’ve always been here and always will be. You will just return to your true form (NOTHING) after this ego/death of the body. But this NOTHING is not nothing as you know it. Infinite possibility is what we are at our core. We are waves of infinite potential from an ocean of pure consciousness! You can’t see behind your eyes with your eyes but you know somethings there just like you can’t see consciousness but it’s obvious it’s there.

  7. Right now i'm waiting to hear from one of the biggest gaming companies in the world. If i get an internship at that place, i feel like my dream is complete. I feel like if my life was a movie, it would be where the movie ends and you see the good guy ride into the horizon. I feel like all my life i have been fighting against all odds that i would get to do what i do the best and what i want to bring in to this world for everyone to see. If i get in there and i get children some day, i can safely say to them: "you can follow your dreams. you can get there. you can do whatever you want to do. go get it!". But on the other hand, i'm so scared what will happen if i don't get in. what if i fail. what will i tell my children then?

  8. Jim I wish I could give you the wisdom you need! I tell your on the right path. Your journey is teaching you many things. You will succeed on your way through this journey. You already have you just don't see yet! Judy Sherry keep helping others, maybe that is your gift.

  9. Dam Jim went way one way and than way the other way dude said in 2017 that people didn't matter and yet in this speech said people do matter and that their feelings matter

  10. Yeah that story about being a 7 year old and greeting people by throwing himself down some stairs.. I'm literally Jim Carrey

  11. Honestly I am a closet Keanu Reeves. And a full blown Jim Carrey, I'll explain, I want to be famous, I want to be rich, so I can spread the joy I had as a kid, share the wealth, and spready my heart, to everyone because it got locked away coz of the constant bullying. I want to bring joy to people. Sure I've written 30 dark songs (Really freaking dark stuff) and 2 really funny upbeat ones. And I hope I can get out there and show the world what I am capable of. Especially since I don't feel the same as I did in school and the first 6.5 years of adulthood anymore.

  12. in the end, he realized he never found himself, he was playing a character in this life "jim carrey". It wasnt enough and he dug deeper, now hes woke as fuck. nobody can fuck with his vibration level, hes on a spiritual quest out of this matrix, goodluck jim, or whoever your spirit soul is <3

  13. If FAITH jumps over a fire how is it not true? Why do celebrities consider themselves philosophers/political geniuses? They’ll most likely utter ignoranence to the world. Lodie

  14. This is simply just an opinion. I personally was worth millions once and from my experience, when I was wealthy I felt much more more free and joyful. Carrey is full of it. Cause he only been poor and then wealthy bit never poor wealthy and back to poor to compare it. Let's make him poor again and see his perspective. I assure you it will change.

  15. I always had great respect for jim Carey, he is a amazing guy and this speech is something everyone needs to hear.

  16. 8:10 … I /bow you… I'd /hug, but I don't wanna get these Tears in you, Friend.

    – JayJay the Redeemed 😿🐧😻🏴

  17. I can't listen to Jim while watching crap flash by on the screen. Maybe I will replay it later and set my phone down so I don't have to have the words distracted by garbage.

  18. "I watched my father's humor and laughter how change the world around me."
    Then I went to Hollywood became incredibly wealthy and known all of the world and I turned into an enormous pompous jackass

  19. The small hats control our education, religion, media, banks, politicians & Hollywood. You only have yourselves to blame.

  20. There is a saying I once heard: "The people who give us happiness tends to be the most miserable. Only through your enjoyment, they find meaning. And in that, the world moves forward in prosperity." Only in hindsight, I realize how true this saying was.

  21. stock market has been extremely successful lately. I still make big profits trading with Bryan Moore As my trader

  22. Wow. I just had a parell synchronization to this with one then two patients in LONGREACH mental institution. It's beverley Sait. I guess my raffle prize is ticking. Immortal we are. FBI you will one day find out what all this is about

  23. Biblical calling. Was you genuis enough two create not one but two remote controllers then twist life out and on. Riding dark into light #beverleysait @eminem. Riding Salem's lot through. Not scary. Scary is the reason I won't take a trip. I had spiritual attachments hallucinations everytime I had a RISE OF THE TEMPERATURE#FULLSTOP. SPACE AMBIENT LIVE CUCKOO S CALLING. MISS SAIT HERE MERGING THE AIRWAVES VUT SIGNAL BROKEN MR CAREY HERE. DIED FROM YOUR CAR CRASH. TELL THE BBC WRONG NAME BUT I NEED HELP. MAYBR YOU COULD MSG ME THROUGH SPIRITUAL AWAKENINGS TOP GROUP. ITS OVER MY HEAD. TWO WAY COMMUNICATION THROUGH DEAD AIRWAVES

  24. Lol so many people worried about not seeing his face….youre missing the entire point. This speech is gold. Wish this way of thinking was universal. I actually think it is, we've just learned to say "oh thats bullshit, i cant get ahead cause of this or that." Gotta avoid being yourself and avoid ridicule cause I'm too scared to just live. Gotta find a way to live forever or leave my legacy. Worry worry worry. Worrying doesn't help. Just go with the flow.

  25. Jim Carey is fake. He is an ungrateful shameful person. I feel absolutely deep heart felt sorrow for anyone who blindly listens to his shallow words just because he knows how to play pretend in front of a camera.

  26. If I had given this speech I would say yes there is somebody bigger than me and His name is Jesus Christ and He gives me everything I need to me make me whole. He hung on a cross and died to save me from sin and loves me wholeheartedly, like He loves you Jim. He is the way the truth and the life 😊❤

  27. i never made illusions that money will solve all your problems in life. its just the freedom from depending on anyone for your expenses. that's all. it doesnt matter if you even make billions and have women around you . all it does is feed your ego for a while then you can go back to your old sad life after that. its just how some people like to portray like they got everything because they have it. how many rich people have we had whose life ended up in suicide?

  28. The important part of all this is to not become involved in a political party. They stifle and control you. Live life and think for yourself

  29. I be the one I needed as I was a child, all the time. There's no reset at me… I might be that ego telling me that immortal Story about dying, but for good. I remember everyone, me yet, but I find struggle and starving, once I find a look to myself. The world is full of people… People who care about that one thing. Them. And no meter what your thoughts are. As you study life, others do. But their concept is consume or get consumed. Don't mind people suchlike me Jim… We ain't much, but worth it. Force, god forbid.

  30. Good message from Jim, spectacular in many ways, but this video filled with mostly irrelevant and distracting video clips was mildly painful to watch. I'd rather have had at least 90% of Jim Carrey, and only a few, RELEVANT AND ILLUSTRATIVE CLIPS, overlaying the audio. Snatching other people's videos and clips from movies is no longer original or interesting… so many other sources are doing it (and this video's clip references are barely connected to the subject in so many cases) that it just gets annoying after awhile.
    Stay on the message… AMPLIFY Jim's theme and subject; don't crush it under so many distracting and irrelevant side clips.

  31. How have I gotten 4 ads? It says 2. 2 have played and it still says 1 of 2? Fuck you. Some of them are sold by nicely voiced people, but their eyes emanate deceit. It's a 10 minute video!! TV was never this bad -.-

  32. We all need Jesus! There is no life without Jesus. Connect to Him then you will know the purpose, meaning and destiny for your life. He is the way, He is the Truth, He is the life. You find who you really are in Him. So seek Him, know Him, follow Him. You will find Hope nit only in this life but hope for eternal life that everyone longing for concisely or unconsciously. Because God written eternity in our heart. Humanity has no hope 10 out of 10 die. Wealth, popularity, your goodness can not buy or get eternal life but Jesus gives freely those them believe and have faith in Him His promises. He did demonstrated by came out from the grave defeated the greatest enemy death for us. Now death has no power over who believe because they too resurrected into new life from passing death to life again. That is born again in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen. God is good,

  33. WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT MR. CARREY HERE IS THAT EVERY WORD HE HAS SPOKEN WAS HERE WAS INSPIRED AND INSTITUTED BY HIS EXPERIENCE OF AYAHUASCA AND THAT IS WHAT CHANGED HIM AFTER YEARS OF DEPRESSION. AFTER HIS AYAHUASCA EXPERIENCE, HE BECAME A RENEWED VERSION OF HIMSELF AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, JUST ASK HIM… BESIDES LIFE, AYAHUASCA HAS MADE THE MOST PROFOUND & HARD IMPRESSION ON HIM AND HE'S THE LIVING PROOF OF IT. I KNOW THAT ALSO BECAUSE IT ALSO CHANGED MINE. RELIGION GIVES YOU HOPE TO BELIEVE IN AN INVISIBLE GOD, AYAHUASCA PRESENTS YOU WITH THE REAL "YOU" AND SHOWS YOU THE "LIFE-FORCE" THAT CREATED YOU WITHOUT HAVING TO "BEG, PRAY & OBEY" AS THEY SELL IT BUT INSTEAD, YOU ACQUIRE THE "REAL FAITH" TO WALK THROUGH THE FIRE AND IT ONLY BURNS THE LEFT OVERS OF YOUR PREVIOUS "BODY OF BELIEF", EXPOSING THE IRON HARNESS YOU NEVER NEW IT WAS THERE ALL ALONG.

  34. Hollywood forgets their start in life! All Americans must become great upon their own devises not under government's thumb!!

  35. Secret to success is to be just is assessing who you really are in
    relation to all that exists. We are all created beings and do have a
    creator so to be just we must give him the value, gratitude, love, and
    credit that he deserves and not give those who do not deserve them (for
    example we should not love the creation, money power… more than the
    creator who brought everything and everyone into existence and has been
    and will be providing and been maintaining/re-creating for all that
    exist). …….O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and
    those before you, that you may become righteous – (@)
    [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a
    ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby
    fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to God equals while you
    know (@)…..
    What you just read are verses 21-22 from chapter 2 in "To be recited"
    which is the direct word of God revealed to Mohammad to guide all
    mankind and also to correct the wrong ideas that man put in his previous
    revelations

    How do we know if Mohammad was a true prophet of God?
    There are many reasons two of the most important reasons are: what he
    predicted has come true (there are also other proofs in the Bible which
    we don't discuss at this time) and also the many scientific facts that
    God revealed in Quran. It is impossible for a man 1400 years ago to know
    what was just discovered recently. Please watch the following youtube
    video: @

    The Bible gives us the following test to see if someone who claims to be a prophet sent by God is really is a prophet:

    Deuteronomy @
    If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place
    or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet
    has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.

    Please watch the following video that talks about the prophesies of
    Mohammad that he made about 1400 years ago that have come true:
    The link to the video: @

    Below are other videos that show proofs that Mohammad was the messenger of God (please start with video #1 then #2 and so on):
    @ (part 1 you can see other parts in you tube)

    Also, what you see in the news that a few are doing in the name of Islam
    (which means submission to the will of God) does not represent true
    Islam.
    Islam is the continuation of the same message that God has sent through
    all his messengers (for example Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus) to ask
    people to worship only him and set up no partners with him in worship
    (idolatry) and to teach them righteousness and to give them good news
    and to warn them.
    Please look deeply into his message of Islam. It is not what you see in the media
