I used to be so risk averse… so frightened of failure with different endeavours, but I am quite inspired by a moving motivational speech the actor/comedian Jim Carrey gave 9inspired largely by his own father’s crippling fear of failure – which he often quite movingly talks about) about how “If you’re going to fail, you might as well fail at something you’re good at”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eE7t9G35dtk Truly inspiring. It’s no wonder that Jim Carrey is so well liked by everyone that he works with; what a nice man.

Going through those unlucky or tough moments call be hard, but we ultimately “see” what they were preparing for us… Thank you for your words and video (will let you know after I watch it..)

Life is worth living because of the unknown… Not knowing drives us to know… LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Oh my!
