Do you have days where you just can’t get motivated, or worse, you are hitting a patch of major burnout? One of the questions I hear the most when I’m speaking at live events is, “Melanie, how do I overcome feeling like I’ve hit the wall so I’m inspired to go for bold goals again?”

In episode 72 of Amplify Your Success Podcast, I’m tackling some of the most common questions I get asked by entrepreneurs and service professionals. From secrets to enrolling more of your ideal clients to finding ways to overcome procrastination on those “I’d rather get a root canal” tasks, tune in to hear your biggest questions get answered.

Key Takeaways

  • What I tell a business owner when they ask me how to get their motivation going again.
  • The surprising remedy to feeling burned out or overwhelmed (and how a client got his mojo back by using this technique.)
  • Three main reasons an entrepreneur has no shortage of leads but you isn’t able to close the sale
  • What an “enrollment system” is and why it’s essential to move people from indecision to signing up for your programs!

When you raise your standards and commit to creating better results in your relationships and business success, you’ll need some boundaries to protect your goals from distractions and nay-sayers. I like to think of a boundary like a moat around a castle – it keeps the right things inside and the wrong things out.

In episode 70 of Amplify Your Success Podcast, I cover the four important boundaries everyone needs to have the time (and mental bandwidth) to accomplish big goals.

Key Takeaways

  • What you can do to keep distractions and interruptions from taking you away from “focus time.”
  • A few of the signs that you are tolerating and don’t have good boundaries
  • The one thing every service based business owner MUST protect if they want to have a successful business
  • Why you need a pricing boundary (hint: it’s time to stop letting people haggle with you for better prices!)
  • My simple 4 steps to teaching others to honor your boundaries (and it can make your relationships stronger in the process!)

If you want a new outcome in your life, change starts by upleveling your standards. A standard is what you decide you want (and deserve) and often the reason you don’t have better results is that your standards are too low.

Standards are a set of decisions for what you expect and accept. From your standards, you then adopt a set of behaviors that lock in that standard in life.

In episode 69 of Amplify Your Success Podcast, let’s explore how this simple shift in your thinking can transform the quality of your results. Be sure to listen to part two on episode 70 when it drops!

Key Takeaways

  • What a standard is and how your self-esteem drives them
  • How drama and chronic problems in an area of your life is often a sign you have low standards
  • The difference between low, “good enough” and high standards (and you’ll want to make sure you avoid mediocre soup!)
  • Ten areas you can raise your standards to affect meaningful change in your prosperity, relationships, quality of team results and self-care
  • The single more important area for any entrepreneur or service-professional to raise their standards so they enjoy more high-value clients
