    From boxing practice I learned that Puerto Ricans are allowed to say the N word freely. Hell, that was their nickname for me.

    Yep, I’m not really spiritual but I do believe in karma sort of, you reap what you sow sort of thing.

    It isn't even karma in a spiritual sense. People are nicer to people who aren't shitbags. If you are a shitbag no one will ever want to help you and you'll miss out on lots of opportunities.

    I’m in sales and try to live by this, it’s very difficult in this climate but I’m trusting my system will work in the long term.

    It doesn't always pan out, but I've had better results in the long run that way.

    This is true!

    Unless you have an ability that makes people around you money and you are rare in that ability then people will put up with it because it effects their bottom line. Hence why Bikram got away with it for so long but then kept pushing his luck way too much.

    Is he a personal trainer or does he have classes as well?

    I ask because personal trainers can get away with some shit here and there but if someone also does classes back to back and is taking advantage of females, people will see it and hate them for it.

    He's just a personal trainer,doesn't take classes but gets assigned dedicated clients by the gym. To be honest most of the personal trainers I've seen so this.

    Most do this for sure and its less frowned upon because of discretion but running big group classes back to back is really bad because everyone can see the trainer act in a distasteful manner or hell, some might get jealous as well. Guys might get jealous and spiteful for how easy the trainer is doing it and girls that don't get chosen might get pissed and insecure about it.

    With personal trainers, everything is left to the imagination.

    Lol, rookie mistake.

    Same as getting paid well and not investing thinking you are going to be ok.

    Hell sometimes when I look at my salary I still get a boner but then I tell myself shit isn’t enough and needs to be strategically used.

    The day you think you’re strong you’re weak

    This is true but dude was banking shit tons of money because he had few classes back to back and they were full. That and he charged tons for privates when he was on demand. Now he is like a poverty trainer.

    Clearly didn’t invest well, if at all.

    Salary men cannot become wealthy, it is achieved via investing but having said that if this mook didn’t even have the common sense to save a third of his annual income he deserves to be on the poverty line
