What others say about Great Thinking Life Coaching

Roslyn Loxton - Sunday, February 06, 2011

What others are saying about Great Thinking

1. Thank you.  It is hard to put into words the gratitude I have for you and the Coaching Series. 

Looking back over the past couple of months I am truly amazed at the amount I have learned and expanded as a person. 

I know in my heart and mind that I will continue to expand and dream and act on my dreams.  This is the most special gift anyone could ever give me.  I appreciate the strategies and find them very helpful but it is your individual and honest approach that makes your series more powerful.  JB

2. Hi Ros, I was really thrilled by our focus and clarity coaching session last week. As someone who is generally fairly enlightened, and analytical of my thoughts and behaviours, I was surprised by the number of "aha" moments I experienced during our session. Thank you for guiding me through that process and allowing me to be true to myself without fear of judgment. I have realised that the stories I've been telling my self, and the labels I've given myself and others in the past are not supported by any evidence! I have really been able to connect with my new identity easily, and KNOW that I will be achieving those goals!


3. Ros was able to help guide me in creating new thinking strategies and reconsider how I process information. This has made a significant difference in my life in terms of achieving goals, ensuring my priorities are in the right order and being all that I want to be.  I found the process rewarding and practical. I was focused on being able to see tangible results and achieve meaningful outcomes – which I did!! Thanks Ros!

 

4. In a world full of people aspiring to be coaches, Ros Loxton stands out as one of the best I have ever met. Ros not only has superlative coaching skills, combined with effective NLP techniques, but she has a genuine, heartfelt caring for the success of her clients. That deep level of commitment allows her to get the best results out of people, and to help them achieve and often exceed their potential. In my case, her coaching has taken me from average to excellent in a short time. I happily refer all my friends to her, and if you are looking for a great mentor, then you need look no further. Ros is the best!


5. Thank you for listening and giving me insight that I have never discovered.  You are brilliant at digging deep to the core and revealing things so that they seem simple and concise.  R.J


6. What worked
Working through red flags and roadblocks.  I am really able to do this on my own now which is huge. J.J


7. What worked
The Structure and the feedback and the ability of Ros to be fluid and guide you in a different direction to where you thought the problem was but upon reflection was somewhere else.  S.J.

Success Strategy tip

Roslyn Loxton - Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Success strategy tip


In order to be successful in whatever it is you are endeavouring, there are proven formulas to follow, you don't have to rewrite the rule book.

Knowing what to do and doing it are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT things.

Here is a handy tip:  Write 2 lists

1.  Write yourself a list of 10 things that you do that support your success. Examples may be: getting up early and training, not turning on my computer until 10am, Reading one chapter of a specific subject per day, drinking water first thing and last thing, phoning prospects before 10am or after 3pm, having a coach etc...

2.  Then write a list of 10 things you do that do not support your success.

This brings to your conscious mind more of an awareness of when you are in success mode or if you are in sabotage mode.


Spend more time doing the things in list number 1.

Susie’s Tips for the week ahead
  
How to lose 5kgs before Christmas
With less than 2 months until Christmas, many of us would like to drop  a few extra kg's before the party season. In all seriousness you need to  be pretty committed to lose weight at this time of year but it is not  impossible. Here are the key things you need to concentrate on:

  1. Choosing a plain salad with 100g chicken, lean beef or  fish for lunch and dinner  
  2. Alcohol once each week  
  3. Skipping for 10 minutes each day  
  4. No milk based coffee – plain tea only  
  5. Snack 1-2x a day on a piece of fruit or 10-15 nuts  
  6. Breakfast as your largest meal  
  7. 3 cups salad or vegetables each day  
  8. 1 mixed fruit/vegetable juice mid morning or afternoon  
  9. Walk for 30 minutes/day  
  10. Enjoy just 1 meal off plan a week or 60 minutes high intensity exercise to compensate for dinners out

Just can't get along with someone

Roslyn Loxton - Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Just can't get along with someone?


If we are having trouble getting along with someone or several people, it is definitely time to look at our self.  The experience we are having is our experience, our feelings, our thoughts.
We can't make other people act how we want them to, and if our contentment or goals are at the mercy of other people acting how we want them to, we stand to experience a vast variety of negative emotions, which, we can project or blame on the other party.  This is our mistake!

The answer is, take ownership and take responsibility or your own experience.

If our desired outcome is to interact in a positive way, to have healthy relationships at work or home, to get along with clients, customers, colleges, partners and people across the board, then this will be the experience we will have.  If we have a negative experience with someone, it is because we have scanned their information through our mental filters and had a certain emotional and physical experience with that.

Release the judgement and the expectations and replace it with genuinely trying to understand the other parties mind.  You don’t have to accept bad behaviour; you just alter your experience with it.  Adopt the habit of taking responsibility for how you feel.  If we are angry or holding negative judgement, understand we have control to release this... "let go".  Stretch yourself and grow your skills to a new level that supports letting go of negative judgement and taking more responsibility for genuinely desiring positive outcomes and interactions.


A great deal of our conflicts or mis communications are a result of us not taking more responsibility to effect a better outcome.  Though we feel justified relinquishing our responsibility and blaming someone or something else.


Ask yourself, what could I do or think in this moment that will be more likely deliver a more positive experience and outcome?

At the very least there is always something we can learn.

The art of optimism is a genuine health elixir.

Roslyn Loxton - Sunday, November 01, 2009

If you want to enjoy a happy life

Learn the ‘art of optimism’....


Look for the positive element in every situation.  It is actually like preventative medicine.  Granted there are times this practice is particularly challenging, yet it is totally possible, perfect practice makes perfect.  This is a practice and a discipline.   

It is very easy to find the fault in people, decisions, outcomes and experience.  It is a fine and very self gratifying practice to learn the art of optimism and defaulting your behaviour to search for what can be learned or what the positive of any situation is.  This actually has a physical or biological effect on your brain that then penetrates into your body.  It is just healthier for you.  Then by default it is healthier for those around you too.  I just had a brief chat with a neighbour who just returned from a 5 week holiday and I learned the 5 things about her trip that she didn’t like!  This is an obvious example, and if she had a default habit or behaviour of exercising the ‘art of optimism’ perhaps I would have heard about the 5 most unreal things about her holiday and perhaps she would have had a way better experience on that holiday?


The benefits you stand to gain are:


Increased:  intelligence, happy feelings and energy, positive interactions with others, expanded ideas and possibilities or creativity and overall increase in general y positive experiences as little as they may be.  Two little good experiences are better then one big bad one!  Especially if this is in your control to manufacture. 


Decreased:  negative experiences, stress or depression or bitterness or hopelessness, negative perceptions, negative thoughts about people or circumstances

If you are looking to see the optimistic aspects of any situation you are far more likely to find them.  If you have a default behaviour that gravitates toward seeing the negative in situations or people, you will most certainly find that negative.  Then you have a physical experience that is either positive for you or negative for you.  The more negative experience your body has emotionally and physically the worse it is for you.  The more positive emotional and physical experiences your body and mind has, the better it is for you and consequently those around you.


Optimism isn’t weak, it isn’t about not speaking up or just accepting things for the sake of keeping the peace.  It is the fine art of developing a healthier habit.  It is understanding what is your ego having too much of the say.  It is knowing how to hear what people are saying, so you need to stop the voices in your own head long enough to listen and hear and understand.  It is about truly desiring optimistic experiences and outcomes that are win/ win and not win/ lose. 


It is about understanding we don’t have control over much of life and we do have control over how we perceive it.

Look for the potential in people and situations.  Look for your own potential and most importantly, dig what you are about.  Dig who you are and what you stand for and what it is that you want to achieve in your life time.  What experiences would you like to have and what contribution to this planet would you like to make. 


When you help someone else what happens is, in ways you may not be conscious of, you actually help yourself.  When you forgive someone or something, you do more for yourself then meets the eye. 

The art of optimism is a genuine health elixir.

are you liberated or limited

Roslyn Loxton - Monday, September 14, 2009

Are you liberated or limited by your ‘self identity’?

All that we are and, all that we have, physically and emotional, are a result of our self identity.

So what is your identity, in your thinking?



If you could actually stand in someone else's shoes,  to hear what they hear, see what they see, and feel what they feel, you would honestly wonder what planet they live on, and be totally blown away by how different their "reality" is from yours.  You'd also never, in a million years, be quick to judge again.

Your identity is what you believe about yourself, usually subconsciously, with unawareness.  Very often a good portion of how we identify with ourselves has been formed from when we were children and reinforced through our teenage years.  As adults we are basically limited or liberated by what we believe our identity to be.  What we believe our potential to be.  What we believe we are good enough for or worthy of.  There is a massive disparity from one person to the next with regard to their personal limits or liberations in line with our identities.

Becoming profoundly and deeply aware of how you identify yourself is extremely empowering.

It allows us the opportunity to re arrange our self identity to create freedom from the things that otherwise would limit us unnecessarily.


To get some indication of what your self identity is, observe your life. 

  • ·         The people you have in your life. 
  • ·         The material objects you surround yourself with. 
  • ·         The food you eat.
  • ·         The clothes you wear.
  • ·         The language you use and things you take interest in.
  • ·         The money you do or don’t have. 
  • ·         Your health.
  • ·         Your habits or addictions
  • ·         Your goals and aspirations.

As an exercise, imagine if you could pick and choose anything you wanted to have in your life with no limits, what would those things be?  Make a list.

When you have a list, compare it to what you do have in your life and notice where the differences are. 

Try to imagine what kind of identity you would need to have in order to manifest those things you imagined into your life.  Is that identity different to the one you currently associate yourself with?  You have the ability to choose.

For an insight into your self identity book a focus and clarity session or to read more

Genuine Success

Roslyn Loxton - Monday, July 13, 2009

Genuine success

Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it .But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid the failure, because you won't. It's whether you let it harden you or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere. BARACK OBAMA

I like the way that Alexander Ozar explains our life being a result of our mind....


Every desire or goal, no matter how big or small, positive or negative, begin with a decision and decisions are products of dynamic thought which arise from an activity of a static source -the mind.
How you think your way to your success depends on several factors which is summarized in two sentences:
1.recognize the fact that you have a right to your own desired success just as you are breathing as a living thing.
2.the willingness to remain always in an atmosphere of success.

You setup a chain of processes within you the moment you visualise consciously what you have the right to possess because the mind and the body coexist in harmony. You have a priceless gift in the power to model (makeup your mind) and remodel (change your mind) your world as you want. The power lies within the life and activity in you which is a part of One Super Life forever active, sensitive and conscious.
Come to think of statements like "you've a picture of what I'm thinking or perhaps where I'm mentally going". Your present situation is where you are mentally or in other words your state of mind. Your external world (happiness, health, wealth, lack, failure, fear, etc) is a manifestation of the world inside of you.
If you think and feel wealth, the mechanism in you will automatically create wealthy situations for you and if you think and feel failure you will definitely experience it.

The statement below is a form of prayer I created for my situation which i recite five hundred times daily and I tell you my life now is full of testimonies .
I strongly recommend you give it a try.

I am aware of the power, ability and will in me which I received at birth, in union with the Universal Mind and Power, to control and direct my mind to achieve my desired goals.
