This is what others say about Andrew's...



BOOKS:

"Hi Andrew, I want to say a HUGE thank you for writing ACCIDENTAL AUTHOR.  You have inspired me! It turned out to be exactly what I needed to get me over the line in BELIEVING I can achieve my dream of being an author."
Michael

"I finished reading 'Dance until it rains', I absolutely loved it, I couldn't put it down. I'm so glad you got it finished! Your Mum was a wonderfully inspirational woman. Your book has made me even more determined to tell my story."
Angela



AUTHOR MENTORING:

"
Andrew was a huge motivational force in helping me to write my book. He was there to help me from the beginning, and thanks to Andrew, I was motivated enough to keep on track with my writing, and to complete the book."
Diana

"Andrew, I also wanted to thank you again for enabling me to do what I have done.  Without your support, your interest and your skill I would not have started this amazing experience let alone finished it and held my book in my hand.  I am an author not by accident, but because you gave me the skills and the confidence to be one."
Kylie


SPEAKING:

"Andrew is with his audience - he has a powerful desire to engage audience into his message"
Andrew

“Very inspiring talk. I came feeling quite flat … I left feeling motivated to make a change in my life”
Edward

"As part of our Health and Wellbeing Program Andrew Jobling facilitated a half day session for employees around  long term health and wellbeing. This was rolled out Nationally for over 200 of our employees. Andrew was able to actively engage with our staff and provide an energetic and fun session providing constructive reinforcement of ideas and learnings. The feedback from employees and managers was some of the most positive feedback I have ever received about a training session or facilitator."
Susan, Costa Group



SCHOOL VISITS:

"Andrew Jobling came to speak to our Year 8 and Year 9 students about goal setting, and never giving up. He was engaging, he encouraged the boys to look within themselves for their strengths, and  always have the perseverance to keep trying. The boys found him to be motivating, funny, and relatable.
His message is particularly relevant to students ready to take their next step in their life journey. His personal delivery, and his professional approach meant that all students were engaged with his message."
Cassie, Trinity Grammar

"Andrew, thank you for coming in to speak to our student leaders about the importance of determination and having the right mind set. The feedback from our students was that your presentation was engaging and worthwhile; and they got to know each other a little better during the interactive activities."
Louise, Balwyn HS



  EVENTS:

"I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the live video Funshop. The information was invaluable and interesting. Great to hear other's experiences too. Andrew engages his audience in a relaxed but professional manner. He is full of positive energy which is contagious and inspires us all to believe in our own success."

There 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.'

To make a difference, get... Full to overflowing!

Posted 5/19/2018

Are you ready for a very profound and exciting experiment? Get an empty glass and a large jug full of water. Take the glass outside and put it on the grass, then, start pouring the water from the jug into the glass. Keep going until the glass if full to the brim. Now, keep pouring water into the glass. What is happening? The water is overflowing and spilling out onto the grass, right? Keep pouring from the jug into the glass. What keeps happening? It keeps overflowing onto the grass, doesn’t it? Well, there it is. What? I hear you asking. A very profound lesson about the best way to make a powerful and positive difference in the life of other people. I will assume that’s something you’d like to do.

Keep working whilst… The canary is singing!

Posted 5/13/2018

The coal mining game can be a dangerous one. Many years ago, back in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the greatest risk was death by carbon monoxide poisoning and other toxic gases that were present in the mines. In around 1910, miners started taking canaries, in cages, down into the mines with them. As you know, canaries are beautiful singing birds, but, are also very sensitive to the toxic gases in the mines. Whilst the canaries are happily singing in the mines, the miners know they are safe from the dangerous gases. As soon as the canaries stop singing, it’s a sign that it’s time to get out of the mine, fast, before their own health is affected. Up until the 1980’s, this has been the most effective method of keeping miners safe from from these toxic gases. So, as you move through life, and are unsure what you should be working on, just know that if the canary is singing, it’s the sign to keep going towards your goals.

Asking questions is key, if you... Ask the right person!

Posted 5/5/2018

You may have heard the saying from Greek Philosopher, Epictetus; "You were born with two ears and one mouth for a reason. So that you can listen twice as much as you speak." This piece of wisdom was stated way back in the year 55AD, and, is still just as, if not more, relevant today. We know what we know. We may also know some things we don’t know. But the most important thing you and I need to realise and understand is that, there are many things we don’t even know we don’t know. Now, what if some of those things, we don’t know, could totally change our lives if we knew them? How could we ever find out what they are? We could ask people, and listen to them, as long as they are the right people.

The word, NO, stands for… New Opportunities!

Posted 4/29/2018

According to studies, the average toddler hears the word NO 400 times per day. In comparison, the wonderful word YES is heard just a fraction of times. Right or wrong, good or bad, it seems to be the way society rolls. Hearing NO, DON’T, STOP IT or any of the other so-called negative words and phrases are just part and parcel of life as we know it. So then, my thinking is this; if we are going to hear the word NO many more times that we hear the word YES, why don’t we simply change our perspective on the meaning of the word NO? If we can do this, we can change the devastating impact the word is having on the thinking, self-esteem and belief systems of many people. Just a simple shift in perspective can change the direction our life takes and, consequently, the results we will get.

Stop looking at the cloud, and... Enjoy the blue sky!

Posted 4/21/2018

Imagine a beautiful sky, with a single solitary cloud. When asked what they see when they look up at the sky, most people would say they see a cloud. In fact, not long ago, I probably would have said the same thing. Isn’t that interesting? A wonderfully beautiful blue sky covers 99.9% of the space we see, yet we tend to be distracted by and focus on the one little cloud.

To do the things you don't want to do... Learn the Secret!

Posted 4/13/2018

If you were to make a list of all the things you don’t like to do, and, don’t want to do, what would it look like? If anything like me, it would be a long list. I don’t like exercise, and wish I didn’t have to do it. I don’t like making phone calls that potentially leave me open to rejection. I don’t like going into unfamiliar surroundings and starting a conversation with people I don’t know. I don’t like getting out of bed when my alarm goes off before 6am. I don’t like confrontation and dealing with conflict. I don’t always like writing every day, especially when it’s been a long day and I’m tired. I don’t like walking around the house at 11pm until I’ve done my 12,000 steps for the day. There are many things I don’t like doing, but I do them anyway, because as a teen, I learned the secret from my mum.

Make a decision to do it right, and… Follow the System!

Posted 4/7/2018

Why do Geese fly in a V Formation? I’m sure this a question that has been plaguing you for many years! Well, there are two main reasons. Firstly, each bird flies slightly above the bird in front, resulting in a reduction of wind resistance. The birds take turns being in the front, falling back when they get tired. In this way, the geese can fly for a long time before they must stop for rest. Secondly, it is easy to keep track of every bird in the group. Flying in formation may assist with the communication and coordination within the group. It’s a system that works.

Get over yourself, and... Just say sorry!

Posted 3/31/2018

If I could give you - and me, for that matter – one piece of advice that would make the biggest difference in your life and mine, it would be to, more often, use the hardest phrase there is. That is, I'm sorry, please forgive me. That one phrase can soothe even the angriest of people, and, totally turn around a situation going down a very bad path. It can immediately restore a broken friendship. It can resolve a conflict that seems unresolvable. It can create trust and loyalty. It will help you in business, with clients and in negotiations. Let’s face it, you’re not perfect, and, neither am I. So, instead of getting stuck by your own ego and/or pride… suck it up, pull your head in, get over yourself and just say sorry!

Do it... While they're sleeping!

Posted 3/24/2018

What is the main excuse you and I use for not getting stuff done? If you are anything like me, it’s always other people’s fault, right? If you’re a parent, you are always having to run around after, and, do stuff for your children. If you’re in a relationship, your partner always wants you to do things for and with them. If you have a job or business, you’re always interrupted by bosses, employees, clients and colleagues. If you’re in a team or group of some type, there are always demands placed on you by other people. As a human being, in a community of other human beings, there will always be distractions, tasks, conflict and opinions. Here’s something to consider, as you continue to use other people as the reason for your non-achievement; all of the people problems disappear when those people are asleep!

Be very careful... Who you listen to!

Posted 3/17/2018

Most people are well meaning. Most believe truly believe they are helping. Most people have opinions about everything, based on their experiences, association and knowledge. Most people honestly believe they are giving you good sound advice. When, in fact, what most are really giving you is just a lot of sound, but not much good advice. You are in control of your life, no one else, so, be very careful who you listen to.
