15 Life Changing Lessons to Learn from Jim Carrey

Enjoy 🙂

1. You are the light of the world.

“Ultimately, we’re not the avatars we create. We’re not the pictures on the film stock. We are the light that shines through it. All else is just smoke and mirrors. Distracting, but not truly compelling.” ~ Jim Carrey

2. Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.

“Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.” ~ Jim Carrey

3. Here and now is where life is.

“If you aren’t in the moment, you are either looking forward to uncertainty, or back to pain and regret.” ~ Jim Carrey

“You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts and worrying about the pathway to the future but all there will ever be is what’s happening here and the decisions we make in this moment.” ~ Jim Carrey

4. Ask and you shall receive.

“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.” ~ Jim Carrey

“As far as I can tell, it’s just about letting the universe know what you want and then working toward it while letting go of how it comes to pass.” ~ Jim Carrey

5. Take a chance on doing what you love.

“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.” ~ Jim Carrey

When you see challenges as beneficial, you can deal with them in the most productive way.

“I’m making a conscious choice to see challenges as beneficial so that I can deal with them in the most productive way.” ~ Jim Carrey

6. Your soul is not contained within the limits of your body.

“My soul is not contained within the limits of my body. My body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.” ~ Jim Carrey

7. Forget safety.

“My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn’t believe 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.” ~  Jim Carrey

8. Nothing in this world is bigger than yourself.

“I was concerned about going out in the world and doing something bigger than myself, until someone smarter than myself made me realize that there is nothing bigger than myself!” ~ Jim Carrey

9. Don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.

“You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world, and as you walk through those doors today, you will only have two choices: love or fear. Choose love, and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.” ~ Jim Carrey

“Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.” ~ Jim Carrey

10. Everything changes. Nothing ever stays the same.

“Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart.” ~ Jim Carrey

11. Money and fame are not the answer.

“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.” ~ Jim Carrey

12. To find real peace, you have to let your armor fall.

“That peace 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 fall.” ~ Jim Carrey

13. The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.

“The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.” ~ Jim Carrey

14. Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world.

“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.” ~ Jim Carrey

15. For sensitive people, the noise can be too much.

“For the most sensitive among us, the noise can be too much.” ~ Jim Carrey

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
