Self-fulfilling Prophesy

A self-fulfilling prophecy is simply a prediction that causes itself to become true.  For example, assume that I am nervous and I believe I am going to do poorly in Astrophysics class.  Because of this belief I stop putting effort into my studies and quit paying attention in class.  What is the result?  I end up doing poorly, just like I thought I would.
