We now know all about Mo’Nique’s networth and how she became successful. Let’s look at some lessons we can learn.
1. Keep your eyes sharp
Keep learning about new ways to move the ball forward. To determine if it works, you must always apply what you have learned. You might not be able to apply what you learned today to your future success.
2. Take control
It’s not a bad thing to control, and it’s beautiful.
Consider this: If someone enters your home, would you not want to take control of the situation (or call the police to assist with the arrest) in order to protect yourself and your family? You would want to increase your home security in order to keep your house safe.
3. Nobody ever really grows up
Do not worry about “growing up” or figuring everything out. No one does. Keep your childlike curiosity and playfulness throughout your life. You’ll be a lot happier and learn a lot.
