We might know that what we are about to do is wrong, but we 'll still go through with it because we don 't want to look weak, this is actually what Macbeth did. He went through with the plan to kill King Duncan after he had the Pep Talk with wife. His wife was willing to kill the King without any remorse at all, but she said that the King looked like his old man so she didn 't do it. The King has never done anything bad to Macbeth and his wife, but he good to them. Power is an incredible thing, it will make a person do the craziest thing that he or she never imagine.
Lady Macbeth had nothing to do with the murder of Banquo. Macbeth decided to start making his own decision because he’s changing the way he is, and it wasn’t his wife telling him what to do anymore. Instead of telling Lady Macbeth his plans, he kept it a secret from her until the murder was done and over with. Macbeth has been killing so he thinks he might was well keep killing. Macbeth has gained his power from becoming king and he no longer feels guilty for murder like he did when he killed Duncan.
Macbeth reaches a point where he is too busy fulfilling his own ambitions that he was not fulfilling his obligations as king. “Those he command move only in command, / Nothing in love…” (5.2.22-23). His obsession with power caused him to murder his good friend Banquo, and Banquo’s son. Macbeth’s out of control ambition has caused him to lose his emotion.

Brutus had a tied heart and went with what his mind was telling him half the time. Switching back and forth from becoming a killer to spearing a life, Brutus was his own downfall. He was not a monster, but was simply lost in his own mind. Torn between becoming one of the conspirators or making his own decision, Brutus struggled with his thoughts. He was his own worst enemy because he, just like all of the other conspirators, had no reason as to why Caesar should have been killed by them.
So he went out and killed Banquo. After he killed him, he felt like he had to do more to control his kingdom, and believed that, “I am in blood, stepped in so far that should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go'oer”(Mac.3.4.135–137). After killing Banquo, Macbeth's confidence was at an all time high.

Transition word Even though Macbeth was a great military leader, he had many flaws that made him a terrible leader for Scotland.
He believes there is no good reason to kill Macbeth because Duncan is good at being king, but he becomes selfish and wants all the power for himself. It is very ironic that Macbeth kills Duncan even though he believes he has no reason to. ¬Macbeth is only going to kill Duncan for two reasons. These being his wife is driving him to and he wants to gain all the power he possibly can, even if it means hurting others in the process. Besides these reasons, Macbeth does not see an actual reason for him to kill Duncan, but the fact that he still does it even though he admits to himself there is no actual reason to is Shakespeare being ironic, once again, in this
Macbeth was hard to relate with for many reasons. First, he did act hasty when killing people. Macbeth wanted the crown so bad that he would stop at nothing to get it. This led to the deaths of Banquo, Macduff’s family, and many others. Most people would not act so hasty in killing others just to get a powerful position, which made Macbeth hard to relate to.
As a result of his insecurity of his lack of manliness, Macbeth’s soul couldn’t be cleansed again. Macbeth proved to his wife that he was a “man” but the consequence of murdering the king was the beginning of the corruption of Macbeth’s soul because of the sense of power he had. Macbeth saw his actions as justifiable because he was motivated by his self-interest. Although Lady Macbeth pushed Macbeth to abuse his powers, it was ultimately his own doing because he had a choice to go or not go along with it. Macbeth decided to go through with his plan to kill Duncan, “I am settled, and bend up/Each corporal agent to this terrible feat/Away, and mock the time with fairest show/False face must hide what the false heart doth know” (1.7.92-96).
Determination befalls upon him to be king and prove to his wife that he is a man. Deep down Macbeth is not the “hero” that the castle believes he is; but just like every person, his hamartia is upon him waiting to be acted on. What makes us different from Macbeth is our ambition and our power. He is very powerful, and wants to have even more power and that is when he acts on his tragic flaw, though he does not know this is what ruined his life. This happens many times within our real world; we see this with celebrities who have so much money a... ... middle of paper ... ...his caused him to be ready for death, so he died with no dignity left.
After he gets the position of king, he struggles to rule and take definitive action, and instead becomes overwhelmed by his lust for power. While many scholars cite Macbeth’s ambition as his tragic flaw and the primary cause of his downfall, there are many other factors that lead to his death, such as his inability to lead and his paranoia.
