Thinner Women get thicker paycheques

Thinner Women get thicker paycheques, research shows

So, another study has come out to tell us that, no, we're not actually amazing just the way we are.  In fact, if you're a woman who doesn't conform to the current ideal of thinness, then your paycheque will suffer.  Thinner women make a lot more money - it's a fact, whether or not it's fair.  So how do we accept ourselves, just as we are, flaws and all, when the world can be so unkind?  It's times like this when we really need to remind ourselves of all the strengths that we already possess.  What are the many positive qualities that you have?  How can you accentuate all the characteristics that you already feel good about?  What do other people say about you?  Can you take in those compliments and the positive feedback and believe those things to be true about you?  What are the things you do well:  Can you do more of them, more frequently?  Whether in the workplace or in the rest of your life, focus on your strengths.  When you believe in yourself and all the many wonderful things you are capable of, that confidence will show.   How you feel about yourself on the inside will show to the world around you.  Unfortunately, we can't control cultural stereotypes, but we can choose how we present ourselves to others.
