If you can dream it, you can do it.
Those were some of the many words of wisdom Walt Disney uttered before.
And he was not the only one who believed in the power of dreams.
Actor and comedian Jim Carrey did too, and like Walt Disney, doing so came out to be fruitful to him as well.
Who would have thought that a guy who admittedly had nothing in the 1980s have so much anybody could dream of a decade after?
In 1997, Jim Carrey revealed in an interview with TV icon Oprah Winfrey his humble beginnings as a wannabe Hollywood actor that started simply in visualization, or what most of us
know as daydreaming.
Yes, his journey to fame started out with Jim Carrey constantly visualizing himself to be surrounded by famous directors and high profile producers who are all at awe in his acting talent
and want to work with him.
Every night as he drove, he would tell him himself that something greater is waiting for him out there so it is perfectly fine to have that simple life he was having at the moment.
It might not be happening at that moment, but success is out there for him, he said.
He even wrote himself a check of worth $10 million as payment for his acting talent that he kept in his wallet as a source of extra motivation.
He gave himself three to five years to achieve the real check, and lo and behold, he actually made that much money just for one film which was Dumb and Dumber.
And so because of this genuine passion and dream of becoming a world renowned actor, Jim Carrey never faltered to believe in his dream and visualize it in his head.
All of his efforts seemed to work so well that he is now one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, probably we can even safely say he is the comedy legend of his generation.
But all of his fame and fortune today was not achieved by mere visualization and daydreaming.
He worked so hard to achieve what he has always dreamed of and wants us to do the same.
If it worked for him, it is most likely bound to work for everyone.
Jim Carrey is the living example of how visualization and hard work go hand in hand in accomplishing big goals in life.
If you fill your thoughts with positivity and determination, you will be hard to defeat.
Up to this day and as successful as she is, Oprah Winfrey says she has learned so much from Jim Carrey’s point of view and way of thinking.
Someone like Oprah Winfrey who practically has everything in the world but keeps a humble disposition in life is also someone to emulate.
For a powerful person like her to admit that she has learned so much from Jim Carrey is indeed touching.
This goes to show how Jim Carrey’s journey and belief in visualization are truly inspiring.
