In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff — aka Black Widow — confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Black Widow — the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — is directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige.

Why Are You Here?
It’s been a tough nearly two years for most all of us. But realize, things are getting better. Life IS getting better! As 2021 winds down, now is an important time to reflect back on what matters most to you, and to achieve your top most goals.
One of the most important questions we need to ask ourselves and even more importantly, to accurately answer, is “Why are we here?” If you work for someone else at a job, can you imagine going to work and not knowing what you are there for? Or if you are in business for yourself, can you imagine not knowing why you are in business? Surely that would be insanity, right? And yet arguably millions of people do not know the even more important question that entails the entirety of their life, “Why are you here in your physical body, and on this Earth?” Surely we are here for a reason!
I believe that that reason we are here on this Earth is individual to each person, which is to use the greatest gifts each of us were given in this lifetime. To one person it may to be a doctor. To another, an artist, and to yet another—an athlete. What is your gift? Your greatest talent? Have you harnessed it, trained, and made yourself the best you that you can be? If you have not, you owe it to yourself to start doing that now.
The second reason I feel we are here on this Earth, is a universal purpose, which is to develop good character. Another way of saying this would be that we are here to evolve spiritually, by rejecting evil, and doing good.
Doing good to others stars with doing good to ourselves first. That means having self-respect, and self-love. To be worthy of self-love and self-respect, we have to live respectable lives, which means we have integrity with our word to ourselves and to each other. To be worthy of self-love and self-respect means that our values and ideals are in alignment with how we speak and how we act. In order to treat others how we ourselves would like to be treated, we also have to demand that others treat us with respect, and not tolerate abuse. And to stop abuse from others, we have to first stop abusing ourselves. That means that how we think about ourselves is not negative, that our “self-talk” is constructive, not damaging and degrading to our self-esteem.
After you have a proper value and vision of yourself within society, make it your habit to live in integrity with your word. Ask yourself why you are here, what is your highest calling, and then manifest that purpose. Help others when you can. Constantly increase your value not only in the marketplace, but also your value spiritually and socially.

2, Treat others as they want to be treated
3, Live in integrity. Be true to yourself and others
4, Ask yourself and most importantly answer, Why Are You Here?

6, After you have Achieved Abundance, Give Back, and teach others how to do the same.
