“I believe since we’ve all been given free will, let’s use our will to let others be free. Gay and lesbian couples believe in commitment, family and love.” – Mo’Nique 

“Do we stand up over a gold plated trophy? Or do we stand up and say we need equal wages and equal treatment? The Oscars have not been any different for what…89 years? But why do we keep wanting to get thrown a bone? Why do we want to keep saying ‘Can we please come to your party?” – Mo’Nique

3 Great Lessons from Mo’Nique

Now that you know all about Mo’Nique’s net worth, and how she achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from her: 

 

1. Stay Sharp

 Always be learning new things about how to move the ball forward. Always execute against what you learn in order to determine whether it works or not. What you know to be successful today may not be successful tomorrow.

 

2. Take Control

Control is not a bad thing, it’s absolutely beautiful…

Think about it: If someone breaks into your house, wouldn’t you want to control the situation (or call the police to help get the intruder under control) to keep yourself and your family safe? Wouldn’t you want to beef up your home security to keep your house safe and under control?

 

3. No One Ever Really Grows Up

Don’t worry about “growing up” and figuring it all out, because no one ever truly does. Instead, maintain your childlike playfulness and curiosity throughout your entire life… You’ll learn a lot more and enjoy yourself a lot more because of it.
