My Great-Grandfather Would Disown Me For This

I just recently got back from a trip to Santa Barbara at an event that changed my life, and caused me to rethink the way I view everything about Paid to Exist.

There were some great speakers, including Eben Pagan, Marie Forleo and Les McKeown (who was by far my favorite — it’s hard not to love a funny Irish guy).

The talks were good, fantastic even. But there’s one thing I completely didn’t expect to get out of this experience. I guess it was mostly because I was completely thrown off guard.

I was expecting to have some great times connecting with fellow world changers, and especially getting some great time to bond with Dustin, our lead “think bigger” officer here at Paid to Exist. All of that happened, of course. And the people blew me away. It made me realize just how valuable connecting with people in person is.

I was filled with a warm, loving energy that I can only really describe as unconditional love. It was incredible, and I’m still feeling the effects of that love emanating throughout my days, even though it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been back.

But one thing completely blindsided me.

I didn’t think my purpose with Paid to Exist and my work could possibly get any deeper. I didn’t think my dedication to that purpose could grow any greater. I especially didn’t think I could think any bigger about it than I already have.

But that’s all changed.

On the last night of the conference, as I was staring up at a breathtaking starry California sky, I was overcome with emotion and what I can only refer to as a Divine Download of Insight.

I didn’t even realize that I had already described this newfound mission to one of the attendees at the event earlier that evening.

And then it hit me:

Our mission is to completely and radically change the landscape of work in the world. Prefabricated careers and factory-like jobs are a 20th century invention. It’s our deepest goal to make a world where work and contribution is the greatest expression of joy and service. And it’s our mission to make this the default paradigm, rather than a world where work is synonymous with toil, struggle and a means to an end.

My great-grandfather would disown me for even thinking this way, because it’s been passed down from generation to generation to work hard, keep your head down and work to live.

So, I’ll be brutally honest with you right now…

This new mission absolutely scares the shit out of me.

It’s so big that I don’t know if I’ll accomplish this in my lifetime. I may die before this vision is realized.

But nonetheless, this is my absolute purpose, and the deepest purpose behind Paid to Exist. And in order to see this vision through, we have to do something radical. We have to create a transformational agent to ensure that this end is inevitable.

An undertaking of this kind has been sorely missing.

For a long time I’ve seen a major gap in this “do what you love” space. And it’s keeping a lot of people trapped in work they they either wake up completely dreading, or find absolutely zero meaning it.

It keeps people seeking freedom “someday” (a day that never arrives), rather than Right Now.

So, I’m considering finally creating this, and doing what is being demanded of me, by my community and by the Universe.

I’ve hesitated doing something like this, because it will mean that we may get a lot of flack.

But that’s okay by me.

I’d rather do something that matters, then do nothing and remain in the approval of the society’s consensus.

I firmly believe the birth of this project could completely transform the paradigm of work in the world…

…And I’ll tell you exactly what that is in the next post.

I can definitely relate to this. I’ve been scared to do something really big with my life for a few too many years now. It’s time I did something about it.

Good for you man. Getting caught up in the confines of fear and uncertainty never helped anyone change the world, or themselves.

It’s exhilarating and terrifying to make a shift in your life that closer aligns you with your vision. Congratulations on your new realizations. I have a vision for what I want to do in the future too that I’ve held at a distance for years because I was afraid of exposing who I truly am. I’ve always wanted to inspire people to live their best lives through my writing–both fiction and nonfiction. I’ve only just started. I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a long time, but in that past I’ve been less than authentic. This new way of doing… Read more »

That’s so awesome Lovelyn. Thank you for opening up here and sharing your story. I think the more we band together the easier we can make it for others.

Ev`Yan

Yes, Lovelyn! The only way to write is unabashedly with a full, open, vulnerable heart. And as soon as you feel yourself stepping from that path, stop, take a listen to what your inner self (your intuition) is trying to tell you, & proceed with caution.

I say all of this because I am in the midst of my own pause to re-enter a more authentic path. I wish you nothing but the best. xx

Kyle Richey

I couldn’t agree more. I read somewhere to “do at least one thing you’re scared of every day”, and it’s helped me take the plunge with quite a few difficult decisions, most of which have led to great things (the others just taught me important lessons I wouldn’t have learned otherwise).

Jonathan I have goosebumps right now– reading your post filled me with energy. One thing I’ve learned during my journey of practicing and teaching yoga is that there is always a next level. You’ve never mastered a pose, be it child’s pose or a crazy arm balance. Every time you think you’ve arrived, some new insight reveals itself and you realize you are right at the beginning once more. Enjoy it. It’s scary, it’s beautiful, sometimes it is too much to even comprehend for more than a moment. But people like you are the ones who change the world, who… Read more »

Awesome to find a soulmate and even more awesome post!

I can relate on every word on this post, Jonathan. It doesn’t matter whether your goal is big or not – you gotta start working towards it NOW.

Work-world is something so big that it affects hundreds of millions. When we all start working on things we love and are meaningful,with fiery passion, it will have reflection to work results.

Working passionately increases productivity and we get more stuff done, right?

It’s all about the NOW, baby.

This really struck a chord with me. As a self confessed (British) introvert, the path of a designer, creator and business owner was something I only dreamed about. I moved from job to job, never satisfied or fulfilled. In 2009 I met a girl from America and things changed. I went with my gut. I flew out to stay with her for a week after only a few months of emails and video calls. After a year and a half we got married and I made the decision to leave England and start a new life in the USA. I… Read more »

As a child, people would tease me allot. I would do things that made no sense to no one, but me. As I grew older, they continued to sigh at me and roll their eyes. For I would always do what my heart said to do .. regardless of anything else. I’ve just always thought that as long as I follow my heart, the rest will fall into place. I’m 42 years old now and my life has been one bumpy ride lol. However, there isn’t a single regret in any of it. And I always landed on my feet.… Read more »

Jonathan, Yes, that is a huge, consciousness-shifting vision – and, the good news (as you know) is that you are not the only one helping bring this vision into reality … there are many, many other awe-mazing visionaries across the globe (many I work with – and, no doubt, many you already know, as well) who have a piece of this vision – whose mission is one small but significant “slice of the spectrum” of this global mindshift. Rather than a new World of Work – I prefer envisioning it as our World of Work(s) (http://ht.ly/f4Tas) – as each of… Read more »

You’re absolutely right Julie. There are so many awesome (or awe-mazing as you put it) people moving this vision forward. I believe with all my heart that this vision for the world is possible.

Leah Jay

I believe with you that we are meant to contribute to the world in our own, unique ways, and this rarely syncs up with what is considered “normal” in today’s workplace. Humans were not made for cubicles. Your blog is so inspiring, and I needed to read this today, when I felt so down on myself, and out of hope. I have to believe that someday, I can make a financial living being myself, without the intense stress of trying to be what someone else wants me to be. Thank you.

Cedric

I completely feel you Leah. I was exactly where you were a few short years ago. I know that if a pot smoking, trailer park raised, high school dropout like me can do it that you can too.

José Pablo
Guest

Hey, don’t fear anymore! I think its time someone did this, and I think you’ve got enough experience dealing with “jobs” that go with your core desires, you’re fit for the task! I’m sure a lot of learning and hard work is coming your way, but… if that’s what your heart is calling, then that’s exactly what you should do, despite the size of the task. You’ll do a good job. Whatever part of the world you could change will thank you for it. I believe there’s a different way of living, and I’m supporting you from México. Do it!

Cedric

Thanks for the support Jose. I know that we can do this.

Great post! I’m so excited to hear about your epiphany and can’t wait to read more about it. When I was 16, I knew in my gut that I wanted to learn Russian and live in Russia (I’m American by birth). I decided my college based on them having an exchange program with Russia. I lived in Moscow for a year (which scared the crap out of me to think about, but was a wonderful experience). Then in my early 20’s, I had the chance to go back to Russia. To the shock of almost everyone I knew, I bought… Read more »

Thank you for sharing that Stephanie. Wow, that must have been a crazy experience! Yes, here’s to taking more risks and living completely.

Kelly

Jonathan,

I very much agree with your ideas as an ideal, but I always fall short when thinking about practical implementation. There are certain jobs that exist in the world that no one wants to do, that people do to make ends meet and not because they care about them at all. There are also people who are quite satisfied with doing shit work as long as they can pay their bills. How do these two situations fit into your vision?

Best of luck!

Cedric
Admin

It depends on the way the world transforms. Businesses might have to change, their might be more communication to help show everyone the vision and what they’re all working toward. I think more meaning and connection with the work you’re doing and how it impacts the world can make a world of difference. So just having that sense of connection is a big piece if bigger organizations will continue to exist.

Daniel Campanelli

Hey Jonathan, you really got my attention here!
I think the momentum for this paradigm is just growing continuously and I must say I’m rooting for you on this one!

Can’t wait to hear about this concept you downloaded.

YES!!! DO IT! GO BIG! I love this post, Jonathan. It was a year ago I jumped off the cliff of following my hearts desire and making a living doing it. I am a naturopathic doctor and had run a brick and mortar clinic for two years. I felt trapped, overwhelmed, overworked, and wasn’t making a living doing it. On the outside our clinic looked very “successful” but on the inside I wasn’t being provided for financially, emotionally or spiritually. In January I risked it all and closed the clinic embarking on creating an international web-based health consulting business. In… Read more »

I am totally on board with this. Have you read Reinventing Work: A New Vision of Livelihood for Our Time by Matthew Fox? It is completely blowing my mind. Written over a decade ago and sorely needed now. It is all about moving from the industrial machine-based world to a green paradigm.

I have not… yet. It’s going on my reading list now. Thank you Kerri!

This certainly is a badass vision and one worth pursuing – go for it! I am even more impressed with your writing – both in the email and in the post. After skimming your email, there’s no way I couldn’t click through to see what this was all about, and reading the post had me on the edge of my seat. You’re an inspiration for me to write more so I can improve my quality and delivery.

Hi Jonathan, I have a daring story to share with you. I was running in our Federal election for the Green Party, a few years back. The media was completely keeping us out of the news and I was frustrated. I came home after a long day of poster hanging and started up the wood stove and started crying. I was running against our very strong french separatist party and I had an upcoming public debate.I sought a way to transcend the language issue, because my french is not very strong and make an important score for the Earth Mother.… Read more »

Wow Jonathan, Awesome post! I love that new mission. The thing i’m doing that is scary at the moment is I have cut off on purpose any other money coming in other than what I earn myself (e.g without a job) so I have to work on my business. It is bringing up alot of fears and worries as though i’m earning a little, it’s not enough yet, but I refuse to go back to a normal, boring job unless it really is the last resort.
Dustin

Ben, I know exactly how that feels. I left my job almost three years ago now, and at first, it was terrifying. It took every ounce of courage I had to not give up and it totally paid off. Congratulations on a huge step, Ben.

Congratulations Ben, that’s a huge first step. It’s scary, but most things that are worth is are terrifying.

Jonathan … it is amazing when you feel the Universe shift inside your being, which in and of itself is infinite. Rather that feeling powerless, you become empowered; rather than feeling fearful, you become fearless; and at the root of it all … the unconditional Divine love that flows to you, through you, and onto others becomes the wellspring of potential, possibilities, and creative manifestations. What you do with this gift will shape your legacy, and how you make others feel will carry your legacy forward.

I’m not entirely sure a complete shift to a world where everyone does what they love will ever really eventuate, and I don’t think its necessarily ideal either. Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea, but there is always going to be a need for people doing crappy jobs (e.g cleaning toilets). I do what I love & work for myself, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I think, instead, the shift should be of the mindset of the majority towards people being allowed to step away from the status quo, and being supported by family/peers to… Read more »

“I’m not entirely sure a complete shift to a world where everyone does what they love will ever really eventuate, and I don’t think its necessarily ideal either.” I really hope you’re wrong, Amelia. There are far too many people out there who are holding onto hope that it will get better, that they’ll be given permission (or a kick in the ass) to say ‘Enough is enough’ & go for whatever it is that tickles their fancy.

Jonathan,

Only recently after disovering PTE, I came across the
book “The Freedom Manifesto” by Tom Hodgkinson. The combination of the two has caused me to truly take a look at my life and how I want to live it. I have tried to convey these thoughts to those around me, bit mostly receive the “you goin’ crazy on us?” look. Keep at it, you are making the changes you envision, while it may not be carried out in your lifetime, future generations of self-thinkers and non-conformists will surely fulfill it and thank you for it.

Hi Jonathan, Back in 2010 I started my first job ever. I was blessed with an incredible team, we had each other’s backs, and an amazing boss who I could talk to about anything. The job itself seemed exciting: I was dealing with people most of the day doing minimal paperwork. Then the honeymoon period was over and reality started to set in: rude customers, unnecessary snappy remarks from my boss, doing the same thing every day. Every day. Every day. I was turning bitter, impatient, sometimes even downright rude. This was not me and it was definitely not who… Read more »
