Defining Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

Satisfactory Essays
I think that another way to define ‘self- fulfilling prophecy” can be “what you think, you become”. Meaning how you act, or what you believe will come true if you have it set in your mind, and sometimes our thoughts can cause us to act in certain ways, or be a certain way. I have encountered this in my own life, not directly myself, but through a close friend. This person tends to put herself down, and joke as though she is not smart or competent to do things. However, she is actually a very intelligent and capable person. She is constantly telling me stories of foolish things she has done, poor decisions she has made, or just bad situations she has ended up in. Thus, it makes me believe that she is living out this “self- fulfilling prophecy”
