Destined for le top

'I always knew,' Miss Piggy once told TV Guide, 'that I was destined for le top.'

She has it all: fame, fortune, sex appeal, and a cute green boyfriend. What life and career lessons can we learn from that porker extraordinaire, Miss Piggy?
Live life according to your own rules:
Miss Piggy refused to be defined by her gender or species. Don't be a prisoner of your job description.
Determination can take you anywhere:
An unlikely candidate for super-stardom, Miss Piggy chose to ignore skeptics and blaze her own path. Don't let others slow you down.
Work with what you're given:
Big became beautiful for the Divine Miss P. Turn liabilities into assets: exploit your uniqueness.

Always leave 'em wanting more:
There was a hint of mystery, that undefinable "something" that set Miss Piggy apart. She didn't feel compelled to reveal all (thank goodness!) and neither should you.

Additional words of wisdom from Miss Piggy:

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”

“Only time can heal your broken heart just as only time can heal his arms and legs.”

“Never eat anything you can't lift.”

“Never purchase beauty products in a hardware store.”

Miss Piggy should be the poster girl for young women, rather than some Barbie-image superstar. She is strong, confident and unique.

I agree: what an unlikey role model! The Divine Miss P never undersold herself, so neither did anyone else.
