Graduation season is still among us the the celebrity commencement speaker trend is still ringing true!

Comedic actor, Jim Carrey was the commencement speaker at Maharishi University of Management’s graduation in Fairfield, Iowa on Saturday.

He thanked the university’s trustees, administrators and faculty for providing the students with an exceptional educational and college experience.  He also received an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts.

"So many of us chose our path out of fear disguised as practicality,” said Carrey. “And if it doesn’t happen for you right away, it’s only because the universe is fulfilling my order."

His main focus, though, was to follow your dreams and how his dad taught him many lessons about pursuing your goals.

“I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love,” said Carrey

“So many of us chose our path out of fear disguised as practicality,” said Carrey. “And if it doesn’t happen for you right away, it’s only because the universe is fulfilling my order,” he continued.

Great messages by great celebrities!

I absolutely love all of these celebrities speaking out at these schools! I think next year, the South Coast schools need to get someone noteworthy!
