A Must-Watch Video For Anyone Who Always Dreamt of Being a Full Time Photographer

So many talented photographers who dream of being full time professional photographers are too afraid to make the jump and quit their 'safe' full time job with steady income in order to do so. Too many people will settle for something they don't love doing just because they're afraid they'll fail doing what they really love. If you're one of those people, hopefully this 1-minute video will change the way you look at your future and profession.

Jim Carrey is known for being a funny guy. A funny guy that have nothing to do with photography. But in a recent commencement address to Maharishi University of Management's class of 2014 in Iowa, Jim gave a 1-minute (very serious) speech that can change our future as photographers and creatives.

"You can fail at what you don't want [love], so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love". So true and inspiring. Just think about it next time your day-job boss comes and asks you to do something you don't love doing.

While the speech itself is wise and might be helpful to many people, we should be aware that Maharishi University of Management is far from being a credible institution.

This is awesome.

That phrase at the end, wow, just wow! Awesome quote!
