When self-centeredness goes up, self-awareness goes down.

When self-centeredness goes up, self-awareness goes down. – Tim Kight

Living Above the Line requires us to be disciplined. We strive to be disciplined in our response to each event we encounter throughout the day. We are intentional in our words and purposeful in our behavior. When we are self-aware, when we press pause before acting, we view each situation through a broader lens. When we act impulsively, without thinking, we only consider our immediate feelings; we only consider ourselves.

Each of us can only control our own behavior and actions; we can only control our own 20 square feet. Don’t permit your impulsive, undisciplined words and actions to draw you into a self-centered life. Don’t be lazy with your self-talk and mindset. Be disciplined, be strong! Have the inner strength to act with purpose, to strive to make a difference for others, and to focus on your core values and beliefs.
