Jonathan worked in the entertainment industry for 20 years was doing something that he thought was making him happy, but he realized he was not actually happy, so he changed his life. He realized that his definition of success and the actual definition of success were very different. He has all the physical attributes to make himself happy, but no matter how successful he became, he never became happy. 

He went on a journey to figure out what was wrong with him and why he was not happy. At the end of his journey, he realized that nothing was actually wrong with him, he just was not living in the moment. He was postponing happiness until he was more successful, and there was a huge disconnect.
