They told him a self-fulfilling prophecy and by doing so, his ambition kicked into play.

Simply because they start to influence Macbeth’s decisions the witches were trying to create anarchy by foretelling Macbeth’s future so he act upon it.

After Lady Macbeth read Macbeth’s letter about his fortune that was foretold by the 3 witches, she conducted a deadly plan to kill King Duncan and persuaded Macbeth into following her plan so that Macbeth will become King. Macbeth fell seduced into Lady Macbeth’s plan because of his ambition to become King. Macbeth’s ambition to be King was the greatest factor of his deterioration. Macbeth’s ambition alone was not a strong enough motive to kill Duncan, but with the other two key factors: the 3 witches’ prophecy and Lady Macbeth’s manipulation this aroused his ambition. Without Macbeth’s ambition his tragic flaw could not come into place.

The witches and Lady Macbeth made Macbeth lose his sanity. Lady Macbeth and the witches were to a great extent accountable for Macbeth’s actions.

His own actions, influenced by others, lead to his fatal
The three witches started the catalyst for Macbeth's ambition with their predictions of promotions to Thane of Cawdor and then King of Scotland. However Banquo was sceptical, suggesting that they must have gone a little bit crazy to be seeing the witches and believing in their existence and their predictions.

Also because of making witches being the evil people in the play he would get more funding for his theatre.
Macbeth does not believe the witches’ predictions until he does become Thane of Cawdor; then he begins to contemplate if the rest will become true as well.

Cinthya Carpinteyro August 8, 2012 Macbeth Essay Macbeth had a lust for power and that led him to change from the person he was to evil. Macbeth was a guy who was not sure of what he was doing but let himself be manipulated by the people around him. If Macbeth hadn’t developed a hunger for power, he wouldn’t have ever committed the crimes he did nor made the decisions that led him to take the actions that brought consequences for himself and the other characters.
