What is a self fulilfing prophecy?Watch this thread
Example: You keep telling your self that you are a failure and you actually become a failure
or you keep telling yourself you're successful and you actually become successful
It's essentially when you cause something to happen by simply thinking about it or creating it yourself. This really comes from this notion that the future is not set, i.e there is no true destiny except the one we create. Think of therefore as a future that you've created for yourself by assuming that is what would happen (but you don't realise you're doing it most of the time). The good example of this is this concept of placebo effect in healthcare field. I give you a sugar pill but tell you it's a real medicine that will help reduce your headaches, you take it expecting it to make your headache better and voila, your headaches improve!
if a teacher kept calling labelling you as a troublemaker even tho ur not, you will eventually become one
