I have a new website – www.anthonyquinata.com

I want to thank all of you who have supported me on this blog. In late December of 2010, I decided to change my career path to spiritual coaching, and the focus of this blog to reflect the transition.

In February, I was blogging about my 90 Day Experiment, in which I set a goal, and used it to learn more about myself. The result was that I knew I had to create a new website to reach more people.

My new website is an extension of this blog, and will allow me to help more people. I hope you’ll come by and check it out! I like to think of it as this blog on steroids.

Too Good Not to Share!

I found this doing research on a project I’m working on. It’s about curcumin, an extract of tumeric, and is known as a “cancer fighter.”

I wasn’t doing research on cancer, but on a subject that came to me this morning as I was waking up. Anyway I found this, and thought it was so important, I wanted to share it with you, so you can share it with those you love.

“So I dug a little deeper. On the About.com Breast Cancer site, I read that your body absorbs turmeric 2,000 times better if you take it with black pepper and olive oil.

And then in the book Herbs Demystified by Holly Phaneuf, I read the following: “For more of the oil-soluble curcumin to be pulled out of the turmeric, try consuming it with a favorite healthy oil. Since curcumin isn’t water soluble, don’t expect to get much from turmeric tea.”

In the Planta Medica medical journal, I read:

“The medicinal properties of curcumin obtained from Curcuma longa L. cannot be utilised because of poor bioavailability due to its rapid metabolism in the liver and intestinal wall.”

When the researchers combined curcumin with piperine, they found that the piperine increased the bioavailabity of curcumin by 2,000% in humans. Piperine is an alkaloid that’s responsible for the pungency of black pepper.

Once I discovered that piperine made turmeric more powerful, I began looking for a ready-to-take supplement. And that’s when I stumbled upon my secret weapon – LifeExtension’s Super Curcumin with Bioperine. This supplement contains 95% curcumin, and it’s enhanced with 5mg of piperine.

I purchase it at my local health food store. On the Life Extension website it costs

$20.75, plus shipping.

But if you purchase it on the Amazon.com website, it only costs $15.75, with free shipping.”

As I said, I ran across this and don’t know anything more than what you see here, so I highly recommend that you do more research on curcumin, and it’s cancer fighting properties.

I’m not receiving a dime for posting this. I just think that this is something worth looking into!

Blessings,

Anthony

Thank you!

The 90 Day Experiment we started on February 1st is now over. If you’ve been with me the whole time, I want to congratulate you!

My intention at the beginning of the experiment was to write an eBook. I’ve written three. I’m starting a new project which I’ll be sharing with you in the very near future.

In the meantime, I want to thank you for your support, comments, and feedback!

Wishing you the very best life has to offer to you,

Anthony

Go Out On a Limb – Here’s Your Homework for this Week!

I’ve mentioned before that I always ask my coaching clients, “If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?” Well, hopefully you’ve been doing the 90 Day Experiment with me (which is rapidly coming to a close) and you have one area in your life that you’ve been working on changing. Maybe it’s in your career, in your health, or your intimate relationships.

Now, write down three things you could do differently; what actions could you take that would not be in your comfort zone that would produce incredible results? For example, you may need to ask for help. Do you need to hire a coach or start having a framework of accountability in place?

Finally, ask three people this week whose opinion you respect, and ask them how they’d go about achieving your goal. Since it’s not their goal, they might have detached  insight that’s valuable for you.

Give up your old attitudes, excuses, reasons, and embrace new ways of doing things. That’s how breakthrough results will start happening for you.

Success Story – “I know I can do this.”

This was in the  “Comments” section of my last post. It’s from Melanie Blystra.

I am doing something I normally wouldn’t do. I am a party planner. I learned from my grandma Harris, who was the best. I love [emphasis mine, Anthony] to plan parties and the people I work for, Stephanie and her husband, know it because I put their wedding reception together and several birthday parties. So Friday night Stephanie’s husband called me and asked me to do him a favor…he asked me how much it would be to make invitations for a friend at work. I gave him a quote for the invitations and the next thing I knew I am planning a birthday party for his friend that I never met…it just kind of fell into my lap and I was like “AHHHHHH!”, but with all the practice I’ve had with doing it for my friends and family, I know I can do it for this person. I am creeping just a little bit farther out of that shell I’ve been hiding in. It is kind of weird planning a party for a person I don’t know and have only spoken to once on the phone, but I’m ready for the challenge [emphasis mine, Anthony]! Why just stop at making the cards for the party right?
Love you Anthony!

Melanie, I couldn’t be happier for you! Keep shining your light!

I love you more,

Anthony

An Update On a 90 Day Experiment I Started in January.

On January 1st, of this year, I started a 90 Day Experiment around building my coaching business. I did everything I’ve been writing about in this blog. When I came back from California this Sunday, and I walked into my home, there was a package on the dining table. I asked Cheryl what it was and she told me that she didn’t know, because it was for me.

I opened it and it was a book that was sent to me to review by Brendon Burchard. Burchard is the founder of, “The Expert’s Academy,” which primarily services authors, coaches, seminar and workshop leaders and the like. The book is entitled, “The Millionaire Messenger.”

I have to tell you, this book is blowing my mind! I’ve bought a lot of books along these lines, but this is by far, the best I’ve read! The book is priced at $21.95, but in my opinion, it’s worth twice that. (Full disclosure – I did not pay for this book, and I’m not receiving any compensation for talking about it. It’s just that good!) I’ve already started taking steps in the plan he’s outlined in the book, and I’m really excited about what’s ahead!

Which brings me back to my 90 Day Experiment. I’m convinced that the reason I am in possession of this book is due to my intention for the experiment. This book is exactly what I needed at this time for my business. There will soon be a lot of changes in the way I do things with regards to my practice.

My point is, what I’m teaching you works, if you do the work.

Oh, and from the bottom of my heart, I want to say, “Thank you, Brendon.”

Changing Your Mind, Changes Your Brain, Which Changes Your Life.

When I was younger I was taught that matter is solid, atoms were the smallest particles, and that once you reach a certain age, your brain is set for life, and doesn’t change. Turns out that all of those “scientific truths” are wrong.

There have been a lot of discoveries in the last decade, or so, regarding the brain. One of them is something called, “neuroplasticity.”

I won’t go into a whole lot of detail that I find fascinating but may have your eyes glazing over as you read it. Speaking of which, as you’re reading these very sentences, all sorts of changes are going on in your brain, and not only your brain, but every cell in your body as well. Why? Because you’re reading this blog.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Every bit of input from your environment causes chemical changes in your brain, and your body. Not only that, your brain is rewiring itself with all of the input you experience, consciously, or unconsciously. Typically, these new neuro pathways don’t last more than a few seconds, and then they disappear.

So what does any of this have to do with anything you’ve been working on? There’s a saying in brain research that “what fires together, wires together.” In other words, if you have a thought, coupled with an emotion, the wiring your brain creates is stronger. If you keep firing the same thought and emotion in your brain, eventually, the wiring becomes permanent.

If you’ve been feeling depressed about the economy, and reinforcing your depression by watching the news, reading newspapers and afraid for your job …, you get the idea?

So, as your thinking about what you’re grateful for, and feeling grateful at the same time, over and over, and over again, your brain becomes wired to access the good feeling quickly, easily, and habitually. And that becomes your new everyday reality.

How long does it take for this to happen? 21 days.

Not a long time to change your life for the better, don’t you think?
