Stout Advice: Priorities

A powerful word that we all take for granted. We are all guilty of losing track of our priorities at times. Most people give their priorities their leftover time and spend the best time of their lives on the things that should be a lower priority, and many times it’s with good intention. We don’t get time back, so we must keep our priorities in order.

Action Items:
Make a written list of your priorities in order of importance.
Look at your daily allotment to your top priorities. Are you giving them quality time?
We hope you all have a blessed week! God bless!

Stout Advice: Influence

There are three key stages to gain influence which ultimately gives you a platform to go out and change the world for the better.
Stage one: a relationship is formed
Stage two: the relationship turns into a friendship
Stage three: trust is earned
When trust is earned, that’s when you have influence. People of influence lead by permission instead of position. A leader isn’t defined by what they get, it’s defined by the number of lives they impact for the better, and influence is critical for doing so.
Action Items:
Make a written list of the areas of your life. Rate your level of influence for each area using a scale from 1-10, with 10 being the highest.
For each area, write down whether your influence is by permission or position.
The more influence you have, the more successful you will be.

Stout Advice: Transition

Very few people like change, but change is inevitable. If something is inevitable then why don’t we embrace it instead of resist it? It’s important to find the blessings in times of transition because it will ultimately help us to reach new levels of success. Every transition is for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
Action Items:
Think back on the transitions that have happened in your life.
Identify the good things to come from transitions.
