#3 Stand for a cause
Tony Stark could have easily enjoyed his life as a genius and a billionaire, but he chose to stand up for something that is much bigger than him. When he realized that his creations could either destroy or save mankind, he chose to become Iron Man. In the latest MCU movie Avengers: Endgame, Iron Man willingly sacrificed his life for what he believed in. When you live for something that’s bigger than yourself, you will find a higher purpose in life that will inspire you to live with a renewed sense of motivation.

Life lessons from Superman:
#1 Learn to be humble
With all that power, Superman can literally dominate the world, yet he chooses to be humble and use his powers to help people. He is not focused on feeling superior than the human race. Instead, Superman shows how to make the most of what you got.
#2 Accept that you cannot control everything
Even though Superman is the strongest superhero in the DC comics universe, still he can’t save each and every person in need of help. This feeling of guilt can easily crush his spirit. But he chooses to focus on helping those he can to create a better world for everyone.
#3 Choose to inspire others
Superman not only inspires other heroes in the Justice League, but he also motivates every human being through his actions and deeds. By standing up for truth and justice, he shows people the value of hard work, patience, humility and tolerance.

“We must all live in the real world… and sometimes that can be pretty grim. But it is the dream…the hope…that makes reality worth living.” – Captain America
Who is Captain America?
Scrawny and tall, Steve Rogers was a fine arts student who enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War II. There he volunteered to be the subject of a radical Super-Soldier experiment and was given a serum that gave him superhuman powers like speed, strength, agility and endurance. Armed with his iconic Vibranium shield, Steve became Captain America to inspire the troops and fight the Nazis. However, he was left trapped in ice for years after a failed mission. Captain America was later brought back by the Avengers and he eventually became their leader.
Life lessons from Captain America:
#1 Action speaks louder than words
Although Captain America can easily inspire anyone through his motivational speeches but he always follows up his words through definitive actions. He embodies the phrase “Walk the talk.” Always lead through example and you will be as great a leader as Cap.
#2 Protect your loved ones
In the movie Captain America: Civil War, Steve stands by his old friend Bucky even though he was turned into a bad guy through the magic of brainwashing. Although everyone in the Avengers was against Bucky The Winter Soldier, Cap did not give up on him and stood by his friend till the end.
#3 Never give up
“I can do this all day,” Steve keeps repeating this phrase throughout his life and follows it through. Captain America is not a quitter by any means and is ready to face any and all obstacles just to accomplish his goals. He is not afraid to die or even fail, as long as he knows that he has given his best.
