Preparing young people to lead.

For you young people out there, who are leaders, but no one’s handed you the baton yet, the only way to lead is to do it with how you see the world. And the only way to know how you see the world is for you to tell your perspective of it—you have to tell your personal story. We’ll learn what your vision of the world is, based on how personal you are with your story.

The more personal you are, the more trust you’ll gain and the more people will follow you. Your leadership muscles are all based on your personal story. That is your connective tissue. We’re looking at you to lead. You may not know that but we are. We don’t know how to follow you, though, unless you allow us to. The only way to do that is to share your story and your vision.

That’s the connective tissue we’re looking for—we’ll latch on and follow for however long you’ll have us, as long as you can keep us interested and keep the vision personal to you. The more you do that, the more we’ll follow.

When you tell your story, your audience is watching and looking to hear what your story is so they can locate themselves inside of your story. People are looking to find themselves inside of your story. The minute that happens, they follow you. The more personal your story is, the more people will want to latch onto you.

If you see the world in a certain way and tell people, “I was raised this way. My grandfather would sit me on his lap by the fireplace and say, ‘Son (or daughter), this is who we are, this who are family is, this is how I see the world’.”

If you start to share that story of grandpa, people start connecting to their own grandpa. In return, they follow you. Your personal story is the key to the kingdom, is the key to leadership. Even if you’re young, you still have a story; you still have a perception of what’s out there.

The only way for you to let those people know how to follow you is through your personal story. So get out there and discover what that story is and start to share it—that way people can follow you.

The Parable of the Lost Son(Luke 15:11-32)

11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.

13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.

17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.

“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.

21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’

31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”

The Triple-Filter Test

In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, “Do you know what I just heard about your friend?”

“Hold on a minute,” Socrates replied. “Before you talk to me about my friend, it might be good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say. That’s why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?”

“Well, no,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it and…”

“All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now, let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?”

“Umm, no, on the contrary…”

“So,” Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about my friend, but you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass the test though, because there’s one filter left—the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?”

“No, not really.”

“Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither true, nor good, nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?”
