In this episode of The Ziglar Show I wanted to hear from people who started a personal discipline that was drudgery, and succeeded in doing it until it actually became a joy.

Or at least not complete misery.

To showcase to us all that the beginning is the hardest part!

You’ll hear about exercising and eating healthier, then into interesting areas such as finding nice things to say about your spouse!

I kick this episode off with a two and a half minute clip from Zig Ziglar where he discusses the benefits of self discipline.

From it I asked the Ziglar audience this question, “What is a healthy habit or personal discipline that started as a chore/drudgery/negative and today is a joy/pleasure/positive?”

We heard from so many people about disciplines they started in misery, but today they look forward to.

For some the task is now an actual joy, for others just something they have peace with and really appreciate the pay off of.

Tom Ziglar and I talk through a lot of the comments and share some of our own stories.

Many of you listening are eating clean, eating in moderation, exercising consistently and you are still keeping fat on you.

Maybe even gaining it.

I’ve worked with celebrity trainer Angelo Poli for over a year now and he’s opened my eyes to the reality that many overweight people have a very fast metabolism and many seemingly fit and healthy people have very sluggish metabolisms.

This is my struggle.

I naturally tend to exercise a lot and eat very little and therefore train my metabolism to slow down and I actually gain fat! It’s ridiculous and in episode 58 of the True Life podcast you can hear why this is.

There is no hack or a secret but just a reality of how the body works to do what it’s supposed to do and how you can get your body to naturally speed up your metabolism and burn instead of store your fat.

The quick solution is visit and take their assessment or schedule a consultation, no cost or committment.

They’ll tell you if they think they can help, as not everyone has a slow metabolism.

But it’s an incredible, high-touch experience working with a Metpro metabolic expert and accessing the tools their industry-leading coaches use.

I use the Metpro app to create and record every meal and workout. Tom Ziglar is a client as well! It makes it simple and flexible, which is the only reason I succeed with it.
