16 Life Lessons I Learned Watching Comic Book TV Shows

at .  Updated at .

What lessons have I learned watching shows like Jessica Jones, Wonder Woman and The Flash?

You can find out below.

1. Do not assume

Do not assume
Things are not always as they seem. You shouldn't make an assumption until you know the full story. Sure, you can try to assess any situation, but everyone knows what happens when you assume.

2. Use colorful language

Use colorful language
Words are beautiful. You can use colorful language to describe any given situation or you can play it straight. Be interesting, take the more vivid approach when you speak.

3. Be action oriented

Be action oriented
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Don't just intend to do something, get off your butt and make it happen! Make a difference with actions, not just the picturesque explanation of why you didn't.

4. Women will have their day

Women will have their day
Hey, I was a little girl when I watched Wonder Woman. Seeing her on TV was amazing. She was beautiful and inspiring and told us the future was ours. Granted, we're still waiting to have it all, but we're also patient.

5. Be considerate, be on time

Be considerate, be on time
When the fastest man alive can't be bothered to be on time, it's a reminder for those of us who have issues in that area. It looks bad. I need to have more consideration of others by being on time. I'm the only one who thinks my time is more important. That's just rude of me.

6. Plan for your future

Plan for your future
It's never too early to plan for your future. Learn all that you can to make you the best you can be as early as you can. Never take your education and training for granted. I wish I had learned that one a little earlier, to be honest.

7. Don't gossip

Don't gossip
When someone trusts you with a secret, keep it. Don't be a gossip. Some information is classified, and you shouldn't share it with others under any circumstances.

8. Don't be shy

Don't be shy
Don't be shy! If you enjoy something, share the passion with others. Don't be embarrassed by what gives you pleasure. Maybe someone else in the room loves Captain and Tenille, too.

9. Listen

Don't dominate the conversation. Listen to what others have to say, too. You don't have to change your opinions on matters, but be open to the possibilities.

10. Eat well

Eat well
Eat well and take care of yourself. You don't do your best work on an empty stomach, and nutrition is key.

11. Be honest

Be honest
Don't lie to people, be honest with them. Maybe don't go so far as to tell them their ass looks fat in those jeans, but if you've actually watched any of these comic book adaptations, the one thing you have learned is lying gets you nowhere. People will be more hurt from the lie than if they had first heard the truth from you.

12. Be precise

Be precise
Mean what you say and say what you mean. Don't beat around the bush when you communicate with people. Be specific. Don't make them guess what it is that your need or want.

13. There are no handicaps

There are no handicaps
There are no handicaps, only challenges that you can overcome if you put your mind to it. We all have it in us to be some sort of superhero. I'm not taking to the streets, but my cats think I'm pretty cool.

14. Weigh good advice

Weigh good advice
When someone gives you good advice, consider it. Heck, even take it. I didn't need a lot of it to know I was better off without Twilight in my life, and I'm betting Oliver didn't either.

15. Know your value

Know your value
Don't put yourself down. Don't expect others to tell you what you are worth, and do not believe others when they say you are not worth anything. Have faith in yourself and your capabilities. Know your value.

16. Be altruistic

Be altruistic
Don't always think about yourself first. Put the greater good before the good of one, including yourself. Being altruistic only comes after you've mastered many of the others on this list. For me, it's a work in progress.
