What it takes to be successful in business or bodybuilding (it’s not what you think) – Podcast Episode 80

Do you seek out discomfort? Or are you perfectly fine playing it safe and not taking risks or doing anything remotely uncomfortable?

How you do one thing is how you do everything. Most people prefer to stay within their comfort zone because it’s familiar. This makes sense, right? Who the hell would purposely chase discomfort and unfamiliarity? Well, I’ll tell you who—successful people. People who are successful (or are on the path to success) have this in common. They aren’t afraid to take risks. They aren’t afraid to push themselves. They wake up earlier than everyone else. They show up, do the work, and don’t complain about it. They are this way in the gym. They are this way in their career or business life. And, if they were lucky enough in their childhood, this was taught to them by their parents so that it felt natural to them well into adulthood.

The problem is, most people are not this way. And for most people, that’s okay! I’m not saying these are necessary qualities for every human to have. But if you desire something bigger, something better, something more meaningful in any area of your life, you need to learn the skill of chasing discomfort and pushing yourself outside your comfort zone consistently so that you can make it happen.

Nobody is coming to save you. Build what you want yourself — whether that’s your body, business, family, or literally anything else.

In this episode, you’ll hear not only how I learned this valuable lesson myself but how I was able to instill it into my 4 children.

Everything you want is on the other side of discomfort. Will you go there?

You will love this one!

Love Kim xo

    Loved your podcast! I would love topics related to bone density and menopause. With the onset of menopause and loss of hormones, suggestions of how to reduce belly fat would be helpful too! Thank-you!

    Excellent Podcast Kim! I have always taught my kids that the key to life is becoming comfortable being uncomfortable. When people say failure is not an option I say this is wrong. Failure is always an option because a; not everyone can win, and b; it gives you a chance to keep trying, perfecting, and improving yourself… Really enjoy your informal way of speaking to us and your honesty always lets me feel comfortable with my own hopes and dreams. Thank you very much-looking forward to the next podcast!!

      Right! The people that say that, don’t see failure as a positive. If you’re always succeeding and never failing, then where is the growth. Which is why that phrase makes so sense! Thank you for your insight 🙌

    Hey! kim of course your an Aries! Lol my mom is an Aries. She taught me how to be a hard worker. I’m a Sagittarius my husband is a Pisces so he is pretty much a sloth lol he drives me crazy. Every time you speak about parenting you blow my mind and teach me something new. I wake up at 3:30 am sense I started the program and my own business. Whenever I feel like I can’t I think of my family and I keep going. I’m giving it everything I have. Thanks again

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Love this! Great work ethic; there is great balance for you in being married to a Pisces..🙌

    Hi Kim! I really enjoyed listening to your Podcast! Thank you for being honest about your life and sharing your successes and failures with us. I felt you were talking about me when you were saying people don’t like to be uncomfortable! I guess I’m one of those people! That’s something that I’m going to work on improving about myself. Thank you for being so open and frank! You’re a great inspiration! ❤

    Kim, Where have you been all my life? I’m absolutely obsessed with you! (No need to be alert lol) Your body to start with but your soul and teachings, being so down to earth, honest and a great human being!
    I did your January Buttcamp and now I know I didn’t work hard enough to achieve extraordinary results against my very nature of doing everything to my best – but it was my fault! I also know why now and I can not wait for your 5 days challenge to dive deeper into how to turn it all around at all areas of my life! Lots of love xxx000 Annamaria

      😂 It’s okay to be positively engaged (obsessed) Lol Thank you for your kind words! Let’s help you level up!

    Wow… this podcast knocked the wind out of me!
    Similar to you, my husband and I are completely different. And it often becomes a source of frustration and resentment. I never thought to look at his (what I saw as laziness) discomfort of doing stuff outside his comfort zone as simply him being safe and conservative in his approach to progress.
    I adore the way you helped me to see him (and others) through this podcast!
    Your energy, motivation and observations strike home so wonderfully! Thank you for sharing!

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      You are very welcome, I think the more we can learn about human behavior and learning how to take responsibility for our own reactions the better off we will be as a whole. I’m so glad you enjoyed!

    There was so much of this podcast that was hitting home with me. I used to be a “Kim” but I’m definitely more like “Ryan” now. I guess life beat me down but this podcast gave me another perspective. It was a wake up call. I realize the effort I put in, will determine my results. I need to be realistic about my expectations. It’s easy to get caught up in your own head and convince yourself that you’re doing more than you are and should be further along. We need more people like you who don’t say what we want to hear but what we need to hear. Thank you Kim for always giving us the straight talk that we need!

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      It is my pleasure! I’m glad I could be the breath of fresh air that you needed! 🙌
