Why Does Jim Carrey Wish We Were All Rich & Famous?

Updated: Feb 7, 2023


“I wish everyone could get rich and famous and everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that’s not the answer.”

- Jim Carrey


Why would a globally-recognised Hollywood actor say such a thing when he seemingly has it all in terms of wealth, recognition and success? This video explains more about what it can really feel like to achieve our wildest dreams of fame and fortune with some powerful words of wisdom from Mr Carrey himself...

Jim Carrey has so much depth and appreciation for the difference that he can and has made to those who he meets. I love how he sees every challenge as an opportunity to grow. It’s such a powerful and humbling video in how we can stop pretending to be what we think everyone else wants us to be and focus on who we are.

Thank you for sharing this article and the video on Jim Carrey, James! I loved it. I really appreciate what he said that we only have this moment to make decisions, and that there’s no use worrying about what’s going to happen in the future from a detrimental perspective. I also really loved this video because it’s about meaning and purpose, and how he says that we mustn’t lose our inner spark, the child in us that still wants to explore and search out meaning and purpose, I could relate to this a lot... to do what you love doing. It’s a very inspirational and moving message, thank you for sharing! And also what he says about how you are…

A very powerful video. I love the focus on service. How can I serve the world? How can I give to others. I have many gifts and talents. How can I use them to help others realise meaning and purpose in their own lives?

I have often underestimated the impact I've had on other people in my life and have been surprised when they said to me, that kind word really helped me at a difficult time or I learnt a lot from something you said or did. We are powerful as human beings and have the capacity to inspire, to shine our light. Shine your light and illuminate the path for others to be able to shine their own…

Wow... "I did something that made people present their best selves" - I really value this, to take the focus away from what people give me but what I give to others and the influence I have on them. Thank you James - and James! 😁

Powerful comments, helping me to see past the myth that it was 'easy for them', when actually everyone faces the same challenges and the same difficulties in forging their lasting contribution to the world. If our idols can do it, so can we!
