There are no accidents in life ...

Andrew Jobling started out as a passionate but clueless footballer. With a vision of and obsession about a long and lucrative professional football career in mind, little time was left to consider other insignificant things in life … reading, academics and education.

After being beaten around the head many times and in pain for most of his football career he decided to launch into in the health & fitness industry. After all the abuse he received from heartless fitness trainers in his professional sporting career, it was payback time! He has spent almost 30 years passionate about helping people with their health and wellbeing.

In 2002 he made, what appeared to be, an illogical and irrational decision. At the time he was running two businesses, working 15 hour days and 7 days per week. He had a personal training business that was putting money into his bank account and café that was taking it straight back out again.

Nevertheless, with no qualifications, background, ability or time he decided to write a book!

With a powerful message he wanted to convey, committing small pockets of time to writing each day and with a strong desire to get it done, two years later Andrew was holding his first book Eat Chocolate Drink Alcohol and be Lean & Healthy in his hands. He is still puzzled but immensely grateful as to how it actually happened. He has since gone to write four published books (with two more coming in 2016) and three e-books.

That seemingly accidental decision catapulted his career into a completely different direction and put him on a wonderful path as an author, speaker and author mentor. He now passionately spends his time writing, speaking and helping people all around the world to believe that, no matter how unlikely something may seem, with desire, decision and daily action ... anything is possible!.

Andrew jokes that he is an Accidental Author, but the truth is he believes that, whilst some things are unlikely, there really are no accidents in life;

‘We create our destiny by dreaming bigger than most people would think reasonable, by believing in ourselves more than most people would think sensible, by making decisions that most people would think illogical and continuing to act way beyond the point that most people would have given up.'


Andrew's Blog ... the question is; can a footballer write and speak?

I don't know about you, but this doesn't look like an author and writer to me ... or most people!

Andrew loves writing and talking! This would sound strange to anyone who knew his background ... it certainly wouldn't suggest that a literary career would be on the cards. He was a typical footballer with a typical attitude towards reading & education ... a waste of hours between each opportunity to play sport! He truly is an accidental author, speaker, writer and blogger!

He is passionate about helping others and through writing he feels able to reach more people. His books, videos & blog posts are all about helping people see, believe and fulfil more of the amazing potential they have ... that means you too! There is incredible possibility & potential in every person and there is an amazing impact through the power of written word.

Please enjoy Andrew's blogs (video and written) and please feel free to add any comments you see appropriate. 

You’ll get more out of life when you … Win the morning!

Posted 1/21/2017

Let me say before I even start this blog … I’m not a morning person! I get up early every day despite that fact. On reflection, when I decided to become a personal trainer, I didn’t really think that one through!! It wasn’t the optimal career choice for a non-morning person. I started as a trainer back in the later 1980’s and I’ve been happily retired for the last ten years, yet I still get up early every day. Why? Firstly, after 15 years of 5 am starts, I couldn’t sleep in … even if I wanted to! Secondly, getting up early and making the most of the morning is the one thing I can credit for providing me with a life I love. I attended a seminar last weekend and one of the things the speaker said was … 'While the world sleeps, the high performer works'. Her message was to take advantage of the hours when you are most in control of your day and … win the morning!

Will the grain of sand produce … pearls or red-eyes?

Posted 1/14/2017

I love life! Every day brings another opportunity to learn, to grow, to create and to move closer to your purpose in life. I’m currently reading a wonderful book called ‘Love & Respect’ by Dr Emerson Eggerichs … a section in it has inspired this week’s blog. Before I talk about what he discusses in this particular section of his book, I want you to consider the results you’re currently getting in your life … whether that be financial, your career, your relationships or your health & wellbeing. If you had to describe those results in a word … would say you’re getting; lemons or lemonade, roses or manure, pearls or red-eyes? Can I be so bold as to suggest that the results you’re getting are not because of the things you may think? The chances are they are the result of your inner self-talk and how you process the things that happen to you.

Don’t hide it inside, be … Loud and proud!

Posted 1/7/2017

We were all born to be amazing. We all have something very special inside of us that is meant to be shared with the world. We all have the capacity to do great things. We are on this planet for a very specific and powerful reason. That being the case … why do such a tragically small number of people ever let their greatness out for the world to be impacted by? I think the key word is … BELIEF! Belief is not something that grows on trees and it’s not something you can buy. The good news is, belief is something you can develop and it starts by being … loud and proud!

This blog was inspired by a thunderstorm … not a dog dressed in pink, purple and yellow! There is, however, a dog involved in this story … our dog Mr Big. He may come across as cool, nonchalant, independent and feisty … deep down, however,
he is a big scaredy-cat! When we have guests he runs and hides. When it rains he gets anxiety attacks. I’m sure you can imagine what happens when there is thunder and lightening! He immediately turns into a shivering, vibrating and terrified lump of jelly! He is petrified!

Create some urgency, as … The door is closing!

Posted 12/31/2016

Have you ever watched an Indiana Jones or a James Bond movie? We all have watched at least one … haven’t we? In every one of these movie's there is a similar scene. You know the one … the door closing and the hero has to get through it or under it, before it closes, or they will die. It’s a life or death situation and, in every case, they just make it through with only seconds and millimeters to spare. They sprint, they slide and they make it through to freedom because the alternative is not an acceptable option. 2017 is upon us and I want to make a suggestion that can help you get the most of this new year and hence your life. Treat every day, every decision and every goal as if … the door is closing.

When you imagine a door closing, it’s a simple visual
isn’t it? The question is … are you living your life knowing that the door is closing and fully aware that once it’s closed, it’s closed. The door closed for great  singer, songwriter and record producer George Michael on Christmas Day 2016. He passed away at the tender age of 53 … he was so young, but he made the most of every day. He lived his life as if the door was closing and he slid underneath it time and time and time again.

Tis the season … To be thankful!

Posted 12/24/2016

It’s a crazy time of the year … hitting last minute deadlines, shopping, planning, entertaining, celebrating, socialising and general holiday season mayhem. It can also be a time when we wish we had more time, more money, more friends, a better job, more support and less stress … right? What I want to encourage you to focus on at this time of the year … no matter how, and if, you celebrate, is all the wonderful things you have to be thankful for.

It’s so easy to get caught up in all the things you should’ve done and didn't do so well with. It’s all too common to spend your time worrying about how busy you are, how little time you spent with your family and how more money would’ve made life easier. I know it can be hard to not focus on the bills you have to pay, the challenges you have in your job or business, the relationship issues you have to deal with and the fact that your health isn’t as good as you would like it to be. Do you know what I mean?

Don’t waste a second … Life is for living!

Posted 12/15/2016

It seems I’m writing a lot of blogs sitting on aeroplanes.  This is the last one … Laura and I are heading home from Hawaii after four amazing weeks of travel and wonderful experiences. I’m looking forward to returning home … to see our dogs, to spend time with our family for the holiday season, to get back into our life and the exciting projects we have to work on. The overwhelming feeling I have at the moment is gratitude … I’m grateful I did what I did so we could experience what we have just experienced. I’m more empowered than ever … to do more, see more, help more, inspire more, discover more and live more.

My message this week is one which is pretty predictable after an incredible four week overseas adventure. What I want to help you commit into your pysche is something I’m sure your expecting of me at this time. The thing I’m about to try and inspire you with is going to sound clichéd and, as a result, there is a risk I may lose you … but I’m compelled to do it anyway! I am pleading with you … stop waiting, stop putting of, stop doubting, stop justifying and start living your life today

It’s burning brightly inside of you, so … Let your light shine!

Posted 12/10/2016

Laura and I have had such a wonderful time on our USA adventure so far and we’re a little sad that it’s coming to an end. I’m a bit bleary eyed as I write this week’s blog … we got up at 3am in Pittsburgh and are now on a flight to Hawaii for a few days before we head home to Australia. As I reflect back on the past few weeks – all of the amazing places we’ve been and wonderful things we’ve seen – I would have to say, without doubt, the greatest memories I will bring back to Australia are of the people we’ve met and spent time with. Many of them, I’m sure, are reading this blog right now. Over the last seven days I’ve run a weekend workshop in Lancaster, PA and a seminar in Pittsburgh, PA and I‘ve spent time with many exceptional people. What I want to say to them and to everyone else reading is … you are amazing, you are powerful and have very special significance on this planet. You have the light of abundance burning brightly inside of you … Now’s the time to let it shine through!

My little dog Joia (pictured above) is the epitemy to me of enthusiasm for living, lust for adventure and naively allowing her light to shine through. She, like many dogs, has the ability to make people feel important, special and loved. Not only that … she has no fear and no resistance to testing herself and exploring her infinite potential.

Sometimes you’ve just got to … Go with the flow!

Posted 12/2/2016

Laura and I have just had an amazing week in New York, exploring the big apple, and in New Jersey, spending some time with my sister and brother-in-law. As I write this week’s blog, I’m sitting on an Amtrak train heading from Princeton, New Jersey to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for the next exciting installment of our USA adventure. New York is an incredible city and, in five days, we packed in as much as we could. We ate hotdogs in Central Park, Peking Duck in China Town, shopped on Fifth Ave, experienced the Thanksgiving parade, got emotional at Ground Zero, saw the Empire State Building from many angles, caught a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty and learned a very valuable lesson in the process … to go with the flow!

Over the few days we were there we got pretty good at using the NYC subway system … or so we thought. On our last day in New York we wanted to head down and see Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty, so we did our research and headed out for our subway experience. After about 15 minutes we came out of the tunnel and into the light of day … pretty quickly I realised we were on a bridge over water, heading out of Manhattan, away from the place we wanted to go and towards Brooklyn.

You’ll lose them if you don’t … Hang onto your undies!

Posted 11/25/2016

Laura and I have just had an amazing week in Hawaii. As I write this week’s blog, I’m sitting at the Honolulu airport waiting for our flight to New York. It’s been a wonderful week of fun, beauty, inspiration, indulgence, more indulgence and … we are definitely leaving with more vision and bigger dreams. As I’m sure you would expect, I spent the week – in addition to enjoying the bountiful pleasures of Hawaii - looking for signs, lessons and messages that I could share with you in my blog. It came from an unexpected place at an unexpected time and was absolutely an unexpected topic … my undies!

You’re probably not that excited to hear about my undies …but I believe they have provided a very powerful lesson. It all started one morning when Laura and I got up early and went for a long walk along the Waikiki beach. When we got as far as we could walk, we looked back to see how far we’d come … at that moment we were very grateful for the beautiful location we’d found ourselves and the decisions we’d made to get there. I then looked out to sea and saw some sort of breakwater about fifty metres out.

Once you are there, you’ll realise … It wasn’t that hard!

Posted 11/18/2016

Great American football coach, Vince Lombardi said, ‘the only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary.’  I love that quote because it is so true … even though a little intimidating. I mean w-o-r-k is a nasty four-letter-word in many cultures … right? So, for everyone intimidated by the thought of work, I want to add part two to this quote … ‘once the success is achieved the work to get there never seems that hard.’

As I write this I’m sitting next to Laura on an Hawaiian Airlines flight 452 bound for Honolulu … for a week in Hawaii then a further three weeks in the USA. We are excited! Even more so because the Hawaii part of the journey is a reward trip for our business … we have one week, all expenses paid for us, to enjoy the beautiful Islands of Waikiki and Maui. Let me just tell you … there was plenty of work required to achieve it!
