Jim Carrey has made a career out of making people laugh, but now he's making them think.

The 'Ace Ventura' star recently spoke at the graduation for Maharishi University of Management. He passed along some passionate words of wisdom that will make you jump off the couch and embrace life (joining the ranks of recent memorable graduation speeches given by Charlie Day and Sandra Bullock).

Whether or not you liked Carrey's dramatic efforts on the big screen, you have to admire his efforts at getting serious while talking about succeeding the real world.
