1) Trust the training and learning process. When you're ready you'll be promoted to the next level.
Peter Parker (Spider-Man) thought that he was ready to be an Avenger. He didn't know that he still had so much to learn.
By disabling the "Training Wheels Protocol" on the Spider-Man suit, he messed up because he couldn't handle the new features of the suit at its full potential.
He should have just waited for Tony Stark (Iron Man) or Happy Hogan to give him his next mission before trying to do really dangerous stuff like taking down the Vulture (Adrian Toomes).
Sometimes we may feel frustrated that we seem to be stuck and are not moving forward in life.
There's probably a lesson to be learnt in our current situation, and once we learn it, only then can we be promoted to the next level.
2) If you're single and you like someone, keep it simple. Tell them. Chances are, they like you too.
Peter Parker (Spider-Man) had a major crush on Liz but he had too many worries on his mind stopping him from telling her.
He was worried that she would find out that he was Spider-Man and be disappointed that it's just him.
Only after he lost the Spider-Man suit did he manage to muster up the courage to tell Liz that he liked her and to invite her to be his homecoming partner.
There were already a few signs earlier in the movie which hinted that Liz felt the same way about Peter (for example: the nighttime swim scene when she said that he's the smartest guy she knows).
All he had to do was to tell her how he felt. If you're in the same position, why not just tell that special someone that you like him/her?
3) When dealing with teenagers, really listen to what they have to say. Brushing them off results in negative consequences.
Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Happy Hogan were unaware that by shrugging Peter Parker (Spider-Man) off like he didn't matter, Peter would try to prove his worth.
He is a teenager after all and wants to be treated with respect like an adult. All they probably had to do was to have a conversation with Peter and listen to what he had to say.
If they had done that, the Washington Monument disaster probably would be avoided, and the ferry wouldn't have been split in two either.
When dealing with teenagers, we have to listen properly to what they have to say. Sometimes all they want is to be heard and not feel like they're invisible.
If we can learn to listen, many possible negative consequences can be prevented.
4) Sometimes people lie to themselves that they're doing others a favor, when actually it's for themselves.
When Peter Parker (Spider-Man) tracked Vulture (Adrian Toomes) down to his lair to apprehend him, Vulture said that everything he was building was to leave a legacy for his daughter.
What he said after that showed clearly that it wasn't true.
He said that the rich and powerful people at the top of society get to have the best of everything and that people like him only get the remaining scraps.
He was just ambitious and wanting to be in that position of power to do whatever he wants like a tyrant. It was a selfish motivation.
Sometimes when we make certain decisions, we may tell ourselves that it's for this or that person, when deep down, we're hiding that it's actually for ourselves.
Such decisions can potentially be very damaging if they are allowed to continue.
5) We need to know when to call it a day. Taking a step back for now is better than losing everything due to impulsiveness.
When the plane was going to crash-land due to the damage sustained, Vulture (Adrian Toomes) refused to escape without at least taking something from the precious cargo onboard the plane.
His inability to let go cost him dearly - his Vulture suit malfunctioned and exploded, he did not get any of the loot, and he was arrested and sentenced to prison.
Of course I'm not advocating criminal acts or how to be a smart criminal, but what I'm saying is that sometimes we have to discern when to let go.
If we hold on too tightly, we may hurt ourselves and everyone around us in the process. If we manage to let go, our hands are open and free to receive something better.
