COT: Living Right helps a man to stay Right
Earlier, Q-Source defined a Jackass as a man who lives for himself rather than Living Third (behind creator and community). This is a man with no belief in a higher power outside of himself who has no choice but to think he is the king of the world.

This is a dangerous belief for a man to have, both for himself and the people who depend upon him. It leads a man to make up his own self-serving rules for living. But that is only one part (the smaller part) of the danger. The bigger problem is that without the influence of a Belief System to guide him, a man ends up living on the wrong end of the Survivor-Servant Continuum.

On the Survivor end of the Continuum are those men can who only stay alive by feeding off of their Community. At the opposite end of the continuum are the Servants, those men who have gotten Right and now Live Right to the Advantage of their Groups while expecting nothing in return.

While the Survivor and the Servant anchor the extreme ends of the Continuum, the great majority of men live their lives in quiet desperation somewhere towards the middle.

The good news is the Survivor-Servant Continuum is not static. No matter how long a man has been a survivor, any man can begin Movement toward Servanthood, but only through the IMPACT brought about by something else disrupting him. High Impact Men, because they live to Purposefulness, are agents of disruption.

High Impact men find that in their effort to Live Right by carrying the Survivors they get an unexpected benefit–they themselves are kept Right. Once a High Impact Man begins Living Right, it is far easier for him to stay Right.
