Failing at something you don’t want…

Posted on 24 August 2015


Have you heard of Percy Carrey?

Didn’t think so.

How about Jim Carrey?

Yes, of course you do, in fact the entire world knows his name. Percy Carrey was his dad.

Jim recently spoke about his dad and how he helped him become the man he is today.

This is what he said:

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. I learnt 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.

So, there you have it. I don’t think I need to say much more on this subject. Jim has said everything that needed to be said.

Before I go though, a quick question.

Do you want to take a chance and do what you really want to do?
