In life, we are often faced with challenges, setbacks, and circumstances beyond our control. It is during these times that we have a choice: to live below the line as victims or rise above it as victors. At YOLO, we believe in embracing the concepts of OAR (Ownership, Accountability, Responsibility) and BED (Blame, Excuses, Denial) to empower ourselves and live a life of fulfillment. So how does how living above the line can transform our mindset and pave the way to a victorious life.
Ownership: Taking Charge of Our Actions
Living above the line starts with taking ownership of our choices, decisions, and actions. Instead of blaming external factors, we acknowledge our role in the outcomes we experience. Ownership empowers us to recognize that we have control over our responses and can actively shape our circumstances. It shifts the focus from dwelling on what went wrong to seeking solutions and taking proactive steps towards our goals.
Accountability: Embracing Personal Responsibility
Accountability goes hand in hand with ownership. When we hold ourselves accountable, we acknowledge that we are responsible for our thoughts, behaviors, and outcomes. By accepting accountability, we free ourselves from the trap of making excuses and passing the blame onto others. It enables us to learn from our mistakes, grow, and make necessary changes. When we choose to be accountable, we empower ourselves to create a positive impact on our lives and the lives of those around us.
Responsibility: Owning Our Impact on the World
Living above the line involves recognizing our responsibility in contributing to the world around us. We understand that our actions and choices have consequences, not just for ourselves but also for others and the broader community. By taking responsibility, we become conscious of how our behavior affects those we interact with and the environment we live in. We strive to make ethical decisions, practice empathy, and actively work towards creating a positive and harmonious world.
Living Above the Line at YOLO:
