Burdening: The Act of Resolving One or More Burdens.
Burdening: The Act of Resolving One or More Burdens.
An "onus" is a "burden." And the onus (burden) is on us. All of us.
Onus Pro Burdens is all about dealing with our own individual burdens. One step at a time. We can make a change in our own lives. Don't wait for others. Step up. Step out. Get it done.
We all have burdens to bear. That is why Onus Pro Burdens believes in stepping in and giving a hand-up. A hand-up. Not a hand-out. All of us should provide constructive support to others. Constructive. Not destructive. This is what we do. Onus Pro Burdens is about addressing individual burdens and making a difference.
Onus Pro Burdens is also about addressing our own country's burdens and making a difference. It is about a belief. A belief that each and every one of us living here is responsible for what happens here. Even if you are successful and have addressed your burdens, your work is not done. Shouldn't you also help to resolve the national's burdens because this is where you live? Because this is the country you claim to love? Even something as simple as publicly acknowledging that there is something going on that is affecting others can go a long way is building a happier country. This is what Onus Pro "burdening" is all about.
Onus Pro Burdens is a part of the overall Onus Pro Movement. The Onus Pro Movement is the driving force everything that we do. Our goal is to address the "800-Pound Gorilla" in the individual's room. Then then together address the "800-Pound-Gorilla" in our own country's "room." Our movement's goal is two-fold. First, to encourage and assist others in solving their own individual problems. Second, to bring all Americans together in solving our country's biggest problem ... the national debt. If we can address these issues, we can all finally begin to live more freely with fewer hardships. The Onus Pro Movement is about taking responsibility for our own individual destiny. The Onus Pro Movement is also about taking responsibility for the country's destiny.
We have a family of companies working together. And together, we can make this country better.
Burdening is the act of resolving one or more burdens. The phrase "to burden" means to take on the responsibility of ending a burdening hardship. This can be something that is being done for yourself, for another person, for a group, or for the nation as a whole. But most importantly, it means providing a hand-up, not a hand-out. Giving out individual hand-outs does not resolving burdens; it makes them worse. Giving out national hand-outs does not resolve the nation's burden; it just makes it worse. Why? Because it builds dependency and no one learns anything. And without learning, without doing, the nation can't grow. And people can't grow. Read below for more detailed explanations of individual and national burdening.
Individual Burdening is the act of resolving one or more individual burdens. This can be done on the individual level for you or for someone else. But it must be a solution that provides a hand-up, not a hand-out. Giving someone a hand-out does not resolve their burden; it makes it worse.
Furthermore, to offer a hand-out instead of a hand-up is not a selfless act. In fact, it is SELFISH. Why? Because by offering a hand-out you are making that person dependent on you, thereby gaining power over them. This is something that people do to make themselves feel better, without really thinking about whether what they are doing will really help. Giving hand-outs has nothing to do with improving the life of another person or your own life. It has everything to do with improving the emotional disposition of the person alleging to help. It is selfish.
To perform a burdening act the correct way, you would decide to try to resolve some individual issue in a permanent manner. Your issue or someone else's issue. For example, choosing to assist someone with alcohol or drug abuse is the beginning of an act of burdening. Choosing to assist someone in ending their poverty works the same way. But you must see it through.
These are not easy problems to solve. One reason why they are difficult is because the person with the problem will usually experience some kind of temporary "downfall" at the outset of the resolution process. There is usually a short term "spike" in discomfort. There can also be spikes in financial instability or emotional instability. And it can be scary for them.
But the long term result of individual burdening is always clear: one having control over their own life. One having control over their own future. Choosing to take on this kind of challenge is a bold but necessary act.
National Burdening is the act of assisting in resolving one or more national problems (burdens). The solution must be one that provides a hand-up to the problem, not a hand-out. Giving out national hand-outs does not resolve the problem, it only makes it worse.
To perform a national burdening act, you would decide to try to resolve some national issue in a permanent manner. For example, you could choose to create a group and assist with resolving the national homeless problem by dealing with the issue in your local community. Then packaging the solution and share it without other communities, without cost. Or, you could choose to assist in resolving the national supply chain problem in your local community, if you have experience in that area. And then share that solution with others. What can you do? What can you share?
At the outset, most of these solutions are going to involve a short term "spike" in national discomfort. It will drain a lot of time and effort from us as people as we try to put a permanent solution together. Its initially uncomfortable. One of the first actions to take is to first ascertain whether a group or groups is actually working to maintain the existence of the problem. Because if that is the case, and it is not dealt with, then solutions will be attacked.
This process can be scary. Why? Because not everyone wants a problem solved. But the long term result is always clear. Fewer national problems. A lower cost of living. A lower level of stress. A healthier experience. More productivity. Choosing to take on this kind of challenge is bold but necessary act.
A "burdener" is someone who is implementing the burdening act. Either on the individual level or on the national level. There are "best practices" that come about when the burdener is burdening. The burdener should not feel obligated to allow others to access their own personal space. Lets us be clear, here. Spending money on a problem is one thing ... moving someone you want to help in to your home where you live with your family is not wise and can be dangerous. We do not recommend co-mingling your helping acts with your private "safe zone" ... your private living space. Spending your hard-earned time doing research to discover a solution for someone is a good thing. Spending time driving someone around so they can accomplish their goals is a good thing. But we do recommend some degree of separation.
A burdener is a "hand-up-per" not a "hand-out-ter." For example, a person can be instrumental in tracking down needed resources like a homeless shelter or social services for someone else. Then, they can spend their time ensuring that the person gets those services, correctly. This could mean putting pressure on a social service if things don't seem to be going as expected. There should always be constant encouragement, yes. But most importantly there should also be constant pressure on the individual to "lead the charge" in resolving their problem and be accountable for its resolution, even while you are helping with the resolution. This is not about generosity for generosity's sake. It is about solving problems, permanently.
This is what "burdening" is all about.
The biggest problem facing our country is the substantially high amount of debt. Our country ranks #3 as the highest debtor on Planet Earth. Our debt was at 93% out of 100% as of International Monetary Fund data, collected back in 2010. Many other countries face similar debt problems. All of Planet Earth and all countries on Planet Earth need to figure out how to lower their debt. And ... they should do it without pointing figures. Without starting up wars. Without trying to run con games on the public. The public needs to know what's going on. Why? Because we need the public to help! Enough with the finger pointing. Let's just solve the problems.
Onus Pro's strategy in reducing the business burden that is saddling American businesses is to prop up example businesses that others can learn from in order to find better ways to approach business. We can share insights about supply chain best practices. About low cost production approaches. We can share ways to expand the labor pool. We can guide others in increasing the quality of the goods they produce. This would increase product lifetimes, reduce consumer "re-buys," result in stronger brand loyalty, and lower costs for both consumers and businesses.
Onus Pro's role in reducing the burden that is saddling American consumers is to assist consumers in having access to higher quality products at a lower price point. Inexpensive products. Not cheap products. The goal is to do this without hurting business financials. This should leave consumers with more money in their pocket that they can use to re-invest into their local economy. Or save and use in their own household, later.
If all of this works right, there should be several positive outcomes:
Decreases in production costs; and
Increases in corporate profits; and
Increases in product quality; and
Increases in the labor pool; and
Decreases in poverty, crime, and drug use.
Who will be the winners? The winners will be all those companies who honestly interested in resolving national issues. Who will be the losers? The losers will be all those companies that continually prop up and profiting from America's current circumstances and work to perpetuate the continued existence of problems.
Are you in? You should be. Why? Because all of this should result in an ultimate decrease in the cost of doing business in America. We believe this is possible without businesses losing out on all of their profits. Without consumers losing out on quality.
The past and present burdening efforts of our company have spanned decades. Although our business existence did not materialize until 2015, the efforts that we have made in bettering the lives of others have gone on for decades. There are countless examples of people whose lives were changed or whose rights were protected by the efforts of those who are a part of the Onus Pro Movement. Listed below are some of the most recent and most current efforts.
NOTE: Keep in mind that many of stories are not told due to privacy. Furthermore, we also adjust our stories to protect privacy.
Our current efforts at making a difference involve the little kidney that could. An IT professional who has spent his career contributing to the betterment of software development by way of his own company has a need. With a long history of diabetes, this professional now needs a kidney. And, furthermore, the surgery is to be done in the Washington, DC area at Johns Hopkins Hospital. To facility this effort, our organization has agreed to provide housing accommodations to this very special individual during his stay. Please support us so we can support him!
A customer came in to contact with the Onus Pro Movement as a result of visiting a local flea market. After making a purchase, a conversation revealed that the woman's boyfriend was trying to come up with enough money to pay for their hotel room. Our organization offered to pay him to do some work moving boxes around one of our locations. But after the work was done, it was too late, and the couple and her 10 year-old were put out in the parking lot. Then the child was taken by social services as a result of concerns. We took action. We moved the couple in to one of our living accommodations. We helped her get enrolled in a drug and alcohol rehab program, and we provided financial support. After over a year living with us and going through the program, she was reunited with her child and moved in to nearby subsidized housing. We remain friends and she is grateful that she has her child back with her.
A Facebook conversation continued as normal between two people who knew each other. As the weeks went by one of them admitted to the other that they were homeless. This started off a serious of supporting calls and messages that encouraged this person to get themselves back in to the swing of things. Through a several year period, financial support was provided where needed, At the height of the support, an Air BnB accommodation was provided free of charge by our company to keep this person off the streets during the cold of winter. The result was that this person finally found gainful employment and now has their own apartment.
Someone living in California made a purchase of one of our products online and got to know some of us here at Onus Pro as a result. Through conversations, we encouraged this person to focus on sustainability and try to avoid toxic or risky living. This person enjoyed conversating with us and started making moves to elevate their living situation. They started tending to their health better and even kicked off a training program for themselves. They started working again. However, sometimes, our own efforts just don't evolve fast enough. So, one day, much to their surprise, the repossession company showed up and placed their vehicle on the tow hitch. In a panic, they called. We paid the repossession fees and they dropped the vehicle. This was important because they were using the vehicle to earn via an app job. The lender also had sympathy, and rolled all of the past due amounts in to the current loan, and added only $6 / month to the monthly payment. And, just like that, they had their vehicle and were also caught up and current on the payments. They continue to be thankful to us to this day.
Sometimes there are diamonds in the rough. Our friend on the East Coast is just such a diamond. A wonderful spirit and full of hope, they have always been there for others. They have a big heart. Even bigger is their passion for marketing and small business consulting. This person has many times provided critical guidance to small businesses as they struggled to grow. They were even instrumental is helping to grow this business. Their insights were priceless. What was shocking was that our company learned later that this person had fallen on hard times. We took action in an emergency and provided much needed financial support to address a one-time crisis that could have destroyed everything they were doing to bring themselves back from the struggle. A a result, they pulled themselves up, re-gained strength, and found their back to gainful employment and a place to stay. They continued to grow their business on the side, and now are able to provide much needs products to others who who enjoy that which they sell. Awesome!
