I don’t know if I should even take the time to respond, or use up space here with this article. But due to the sad and pathetic mental attitude of the man who sent me this email, I feel not only a need, but a duty to address his questions and comments, and state my opinions of such a person. In doing so, it’s my hope that I can help some negative thinking person such as Mr. Roy, to see how their life is negatively affected by such a sorry attitude, and hopefully cause that person to make a change for the better.
It’s not often that I see, read, or hear of anything that gets me riled up, or sends my blood pressure through the roof. But people with an attitude problem, like this man has, just happens to be something that does. (His email is posted here in it’s entirety, and exactly as received).
And as if his moronic questions, comments and attitude isn’t enough to make you throw up, he has the gall to include a footnote saying. “This email is confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom addressed. If you have received this email in error please notify the system manager”.
Sent in error? Since I can’t think of any possible way it could be sent to me in error, I have to assume it was sent intentionally by Robert D. Roy. And since Mr. Roy has stated his opinions, I’m taking equal time to express mine. But unlike Mr. Roy, I’m posting mine for all to see, and comment on. And be assured this message is not being sent to you in error, I fully intended to send it. Also, If you have an attitude and disposition like Mr. Roy’s, then this message is intended to offend you, hopefully to the point that you will do whatever it takes to give yourself an attitude adjustment.
Mr. Roy, it’s a known fact that attitude is the number one thing that controls the kind of life you can expect to live. According to research, 85% of your success is determined by your attitude. If that’s true, and I believe it is, then it appears you don’t have much to work with. If your mind is filled with negative, selfish and cynical thoughts, then you can expect a life of the same. If you’re so insensitive that you don’t have enough compassion, or wiliness to help a deserving person in need, then you’re nothing more than a breathing, walking, empty shell. If you really think that the only reason a person is willing to share their life time of knowledge and try to help others is to make a buck, you need more help than I can offer. And if you’re really so selfish that you would keep everything you know a secret, rather than sharing it and helping others, then you must be a miserable, and unhappy person.
Your comment “When is too much money ever enough, never!” does a pretty good job of describing your mental mindset. It’s true that some people worship money and never feel they have enough. Those are the type people with a mindset like yours? people who never really live, and never find contentment and happiness.
Mr. Roy, if the only thing you gained from reading all the articles you mentioned, was the feeling that we are all just out to make money, then you need far more help than we can give you. But if and when you ever feel that you really want to swap your lousy attitude for a positive attitude, and be able to see the world in a much better light, you will find plenty of help right here. And that goes for all the other people with negative, self-defeating attitudes, as well. But you have to first admit that you have a problem, and truly want to do something about it. Otherwise, no one can help you. Least of all, any books, tapes or courses offered by anyone on this site.
Mr. Roy, every time I see a person with such an attitude as yours, it makes me glad they don’t have a law on being stupid. If they did, some people would be doing life with no chance of parole.
Good luck (you’ll need it) as you travel through life,
Robert Roy’s email exactly as received.

I have read most of your articles as well as Mr.Tews’ and some others but one question bugs me, Why would you all want to sell me your various techniques and methods for buying and selling mobilehomes if you all were making so much money at it? Seems to me if I was in making the kind of money y’all are, that dab of knowledge would be the best kept secret since Herbert Hoover came prissing/mincing out of the closet. Now I know your probably gonna say,“I’ve done so well at making money, now I just want to give something back in gratitude”, since when is too much money ever enough, never! So I believe this is just like those stockpicking services and their news letters–you pay them a small monthly sum ($30-40) and they send you a sheet of stock picks that you can get from MSN Money, Market Guide, Motley Fool and CNN Finance and like web sites for free! Now you talk about yur income streams–No 10-10-10 rule here boy!–Talk about yur yield now! My calculator says, 0% invested, 0% down and 0% wait for free money, why man thats more than “good enough”, thats 100% free money for nothing! But I know them prices on yur products are just recovery costs, right?, and the charge for your siminars–well thats just for expenses, yeah! Well Sir, I think you’ve found an even easier income stream–selling information via the internet–what a market, worldwide–itdon’tget no better than that, do it.
