Making your work known in the world

Making your work known in the world

by Jon Rappoport

October 27, 2015

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

What I’m talking about here are your most profound desires and goals. And often you have to search for what those are, because they don’t just pop up.

That’s the kind of work I’m referring to—the work that comes when you launch projects and enterprises that directly reflect those desires.

Why expend enormous amounts of energy if the work is superficial? Why spend years if the work is automatic and dead?

Making your work known in the world begins with knowing something about the work. It begins with knowing you have unlimited energy to give to it. That energy comes from discovering/inventing your deepest possible goals, and their many dimensions and implications.

Then, the energy shows up in abundance.

But it can all go to waste without commitment. Commitment is not something that happens naturally. It doesn’t float in on a breeze. It doesn’t show up as a gift under the Xmas tree. It’s a choice. Yes or no. Every day.

Some people have doubts about whether their work is worth being known and visible in the world. Those doubts are spurious. They’re based on not having found a profound objective and purpose.

Skills and strategies can be learned. But their basis and root are in you.

Excuses for not doing what I’m alluding to here are endless. People make them up by the ton. Postponement Inc. and Distraction Inc. are flourishing as never before.

It’s even fashionable to be confused, and then parlay that into a solid story of irreversible victimhood. But,…

“Inspiration is outside state control.” —Kenneth Clark

“The practice of a profession entails discipline, which for me meant the production of two thousand words of fair copy every day, weekends included. I discovered that, if I started early enough, I could complete the day’s stint before the pubs opened.” —Anthony Burgess

“They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.” —Eric Hoffer

“Don’t loaf and invite inspiration; light out after it with a club, and if you don’t get it you will nonetheless get something that looks remarkably like it.” —Jack London


exit from the matrix


As you can see, what I’m discussing in this piece moves light years past the notion that, by simply thinking “positive thoughts,” the universe will magnetically deliver success.

“There are some people who hear the word CREATE and wake up, as if a new flashing music has begun. This lone word makes them see something majestic and untamed and astonishing. They feel the sound of a Niagara approaching. CREATE is a word that should be oceanic. It should shake and blow apart the pillars of the smug boredom of the soul. CREATE is about what the individual does when he is on fire and doesn’t care about concealing it. It’s about what the individual invents when he has thrown off the false front that is slowly strangling him. CREATE is about the end of mindless postponement. It’s about what happens when you burn up the pretty and petty little obsessions. It’s about emerging from the empty suit and empty machine of society that goes around and around and sucks away the vital bloodstream.” —The Creative Center, Jon Rappoport

    Jon, this article and your previous one, are really what I need. All of my life, I’ve been inventing things in my mind, but, I get nowhere with them. But, somehow, years later someone else makes them come true. That is my weakness, I have no skills, making them come true.

    Here is an example:

    You must know the horrific story about our Olympic Stadium, here in Montreal, who was built in the 1970s. People here call it: The White Elephant” or The Big Owe” because, so far it cost us more than 60 billion dollars and it is still not finished yet. The stadium wasn’t even finished in time for the 1976, Olympics. All sorts of problems occurred, fire, work strikes, etc. The tower needed more work. Still, the Olympics took place anyway.

    It is the tallest incline structure in the world. It was supposed to have a retractable roof. In 1980s, they started to work again on it. At that time, I was in my early thirties, and I was working for Lavallin’s engineering firm, who got the contract. As I was drawing the construction plans, I knew that the retractable roof made of some fabric sheets called Kevlar, wouldn’t resists our cold and windy temperatures in the winter. I knew it in my guts and I told them. Of course, they did not listen.

    Eventually, the sheet ripped several times, was repaired many times and finally replaced by another fabric and ripped again numerous times. The roof and large chunks of the tower fell also. It was hell on earth. They finally decided in the 1900s to put a permanent roof, who also collapsed, put another one and so on till now.

    What bugs me and frustrates me, is that I had the solution in the early 1980s. I told the engineers that the structure of the Stadium did not seem to be able to hold the roof. I told them that the roof should be self supporting, by building new consoles and that we could put a permanent roof that would open by the middle (retract in two portions) and could be sliding on rails. maybe by pneumatic technologies. Once again, they did not listen.

    Well, guess what? It’s happening now. A guy, not an engineer, not an architect, but a regular guy came out with the same idea and it was approved by the government. It should be completed in 2019.

    See this article:

    Discover François Delaney’s ingenious proposal about the retractable rooftop for the Olympic Stadium in Montreal
    http://www.equinoxip.com/en/creation-of-the-olympic-stadium-rooftop.html

    The article is in English, but the little video besides is in French. The engineer in the video, who approved the concept, said: “Why didn’t we thought of that before, it is such a simple and brilliant solution”.

    That kills me! I thought of it in 1984 or 1985, I don’t recall exactly witch year..

    And see the brilliant retractable roof it in action on a model:

    Wonderful piece Jon. When just one person in a group CREATES, it can often unleash the passion of others. When that happens, things get really fun
    And projcts can become limitless.
