Top 15 Inspiring Jim Carrey Quotes

Jim Carrey is now known as one of the best comedians to appear on the big screen, but he didn’t always have it easy. When he was young, his father lost his job and as a result, the whole family had to live in a minivan parked on a relative’s lawn. But despite all this, Carrey remained a true believer in the law of attraction

If you ask Jim Carrey, he will insist that his life is proof that the universe does listen to our wishes. While still living in Canada and with almost no money in his bank account, Jim Carrey would visualize actors and directors telling him how they liked his work.


At the age of 28, when he was still struggling as a young comedian, he wrote himself a check for 10 million dollars and gave himself 5 years to cash it in. In the memo, he wrote: “For acting services rendered.” He kept it in his wallet it until July 1995, a few weeks before his self-imposed deadline when he found out he would be making 10 million dollars for his role in Dumb and Dumber.

But he tells this story by also reminding us that you still have to work hard to get there. In his own words and in a very Jim Carrey way he says: “ You can’t just visualize it and then go eat a sandwich.”

Here are 15 of the most inspiring Jim Carrey quotes that will change your view on life and success.

Friendships are often fleeting. People come into our lives for a season and then they're gone. (Or they become one of our 2571 Facebook friends relegated to hearing about our lives via reels and posts).

But every once in a while, if we're really lucky, someone comes along who stays. Someone who grows with us and laughs with us and shares our deepest secrets. Someone who is there, through all of it — the good, the bad, and the times when we can't lift our broken-hearted bodies off the floor.
