How so?
The "self-fulfilling prophecy". If one thinks of something good or bad happening, it will. It is in many books as it is an actual term. So, that is why I say if you think you will have a bad time, then you will because you will not look for any good things.

No ill intentions are inferred by myself, I am just stating a phenomenon.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
