How often does it happen that few people give up because of one problem or the other in their life? They give up chasing their dreams because they accept their defeat rather too soon.
But that's certainly is not the case with one of our legendary comic actors, none other than Jim Carrey.
Not many people know, but veteran actorJim Carrey is a live example of a success story that is inspiring.
“Jim Carrey has a dark past. The Canadian actor grew up in poverty and at 12 years old was forced to get an after-school factory job working eight hours per day. His father lost his job when he was 15 and since then this guy has been sort of taking on the world. It seems the actor always had a knack for antics and that was to pay off but not just yet. The family lived in a van for a while, and he along with his family worked together as security guards and janitors. “
His father would help him put together stage acts and drive him to Toronto to debut at the comedy club YukYuk’s. This never took off which made him start doubting his abilities. Things became even worse when his family started experiencing financial difficulties which made it hard for them to support his ambitions.
They, however, moved into a new home and Carrey went back on stage with more confidence and better-polished act. He found himself opening mic nights and later became a regularly paid comedian in the shows. His star was now beginning to shine.
And after doing a string of side roles in many low budget Hollywood flicks, Jim Carrey shot to fame with the Ace Ventura Series, and the rest, as they say, is history. (in his struggling days Carrey wrote himself a $10 million cheque and dated it with a future date on it. It kept him motivated. He rose to fame and was earning exactly $10 million as his fee for a film. When his father passed away in 1994, he slipped the cheque into his father’s pocket in the casket before burial).
I remember watching him on the “Inside Actors Studio” where he had revealed the truth about his life and since then this guy has been someone who has inspired me.
