What is your favorite motivational quote?Anette: It’s long but here it is!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson
We admire your openness and honesty throughout your publications on social networks. We believe in the power and importance of acceptance and self-love.
For all those who still suffer from insecurity, in your opinion, what helped you to get there?
Anette: Thank you! My biggest piece of advice would be to dive into personal development, self-awareness and learning what YOUR strengths are, instead of focusing on everyone else’s. We are all so unique and it is my belief that when we truly know ourselves and our unique strengths, we naturally become confident in who we are. We are all here to make a unique contribution to the world! The key is in finding out how YOU will do that. This is what has helped me get there.
WHY ATP LAB?Anette: I absolutely love that ATP lab focuses on true HEALTH and produces the best quality pharmaceutical grade supplements in the industry!
IN A FEW WORDS, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO FANS WHO SEEK A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE?Anette: Focus on creating a lifestyle that gives you energy and makes you feel at your very best! Build your nutrition and fitness around that - FEELING GOOD, and you will maintain it forever!
