Preconceived ideas

Land in a new city and expect it's inhabitants will be unfriendly, rude and abrupt?

Unfriendly, rude and abrupt you shall find them. 

I'm old, frail and sick.

So you shall be old, frail and sick.  

I'm always pipped at the post! I will be disrespected in a minute. I'm going to always be broke. I don't think my break will ever come. 

Expectations and what you anticipate in this life can predict our real world experiences. 

Turn these around and you'll turn your life around.
