My 2010

Posted on December 31, 2010. Filed under: My Life | Tags: , , , |

The smart and always encouraging Michelle Pippin posted her review of her 2010: Lessons from 2010…personal, business, and more! and I wanted to share with you the things I learned about myself personally and professionally in 2010.

1. I cannot do everything alone.

This is something I struggle with more in my personal life than professional. As I grow my business I am comfortable asking for help because I know I’m not an “expert” at everything. The problem I have with this area is I’m a perfectionist. It is harder for me to as for help in my personal life. I forget that others do not expect 110% of themselves as I do of myself.

I have learned asking for help is not a weakness but a strength.

2. Family AND Monyelle come first.

I always put my family first, but I put myself last. My body taught me a very hard lesson this year. That lesson was to put myself first as well, do the things I enjoy (that are NOT work related) and to take breaks/vacations!

If your body cannot function, you cannot help anyone…including yourself! Please learn from my mistake here. I would not wish the physical pain I experienced from stress on anyone. Take time out for yourself EVERY WEEK!

3. Trust yourself

If you have a  support system, listen, they know what they’re talking about. If you do not have the personal or professional support you need, go find it! Email me right now: info@monyellemingo.com. I went through a major overall of the type of people I surrounded myself with personally through out this year and professionally/online in November and December. It has made a world of a difference in my work, life,  creativity, drive, and courage.

Because of this change I cannot wait for 2011! If you are around people who shoot for the moon, you too will look up and shoot for the moon.

You can be as happy and successful as you want. Write down your goals, break it down by week and month. Then get started TODAY!

I look forward to growing with you in 2011!
