BOOKS:

"The Wellness Puzzle is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle books I have ever read. If you follow Andrew's seven life principles, you will be on the way to achieving his hefty goal of living well and living to 100."
Dr Ross Walker

"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.'

Understand clearly, your... Decisions make you!

Posted 12/7/2019

Are you ready to have your mind blown? Well get this; on average, we make 35,000 decisions per day! Yes, you read correctly, 35,000 decisions every day! It’s amazing our heads don’t explode! What type of decisions do we make? Big ones, little ones, conscious ones, unconscious ones, significant ones and those that may seem to be insignificant ones. Out of all of those decisions, how many do you think are actually insignificant? 1000, 5000, 10,000 or 20,000 of them? The truth is, none of them are insignificant. Each one of them will start a ripple that will impact lives. Make no mistake, every decision you make, makes you!

The lessons from... A train-wreck!

Posted 11/30/2019

I am normally Mr Positive. In fact, I have been labelled by teenagers, at schools I have spoken at, as ‘The Positive Man.’ I like being referred to as positive. I mean it runs circles around the alternative, doesn’t it? Who wants to be known as a miserable, negative person? So, even though I have a positive mindset, and I can look at things with a creative and optimistic perspective, there are times when things just go all wrong. There are times, in all of our lives, when we experience the train-wreck. Well, I experienced a professional train-wreck this week and whilst, at the time, it was one of the most unpleasant and uncomfortable experiences of my speaking career, there are lessons that have come out of it that will help me move forward to become better at what I do. Whenever you experience a train-wreck, look at the rubble, learn the lessons and keep going.

Maybe it's time to... Look at the mud again!

Posted 11/23/2019

I was listening to a great speaker, Steve, very recently talking about how to turn discouragement into encouragement. He told a story about himself, which really resonated with me and inspired this week’s blog. He described himself as clean-freak, especially when it came to his car. He kept it in immaculate condition, at all times. It was cleaned, polished, shined and vacuumed to keep it looking pristine. One day he took his two young sons to play a soccer game. After he got home and the boys ran inside, he noticed mud from their boots and uniform all over his beautifully manicured car. He was immediately discouraged. He was stressed, worried and angry because he let his beautiful car fall into such a filthy state. This discouragement affected him, his mood, his relationships, and, pretty much everything. Then it all changed, when he decided to look at the mud again.

Deliberately choose your addiction!

Posted 11/14/2019

Let’s face it and be honest; we are all addicted or going to be addicted to things in our lives, right? From a self-help perspective, it may seem appropriate for me to tell you to avoid anything addictive, break all addictions and be a good boy or girl, but it’s not very reasonable. We are human and the human condition leads us into addictive behaviours. I know this because I have an addictive personality, for good, and not so good. What about you? If, in fact, we are going to get addicted to things in our life, then I want to suggest that we deliberately choose addictions that will help us, not harm us.

The only voice that matters, is... Your voice!

Posted 11/9/2019

Wow, there are lots of voices in the world, aren’t there? There are voices that you recognise, there are voices that are loud and force you to listen, there are voices that will help you and guide you, and, there are voices that will lead in the wrong direction, if you let them. There are voices that affirm you’re good enough and voices declaring you’re not. There are voices that will lift and encourage you and there are voices that will try to bring you down. Of all the voices you face every day, there is only one that will determine what will happen in your life. Yes, you know it… it’s yours!

Wellbeing is not a pillar, it's... The foundation!

Posted 11/3/2019

I was in Italy this time last year. I had six wonderful weeks enjoying this most beautiful country. There are some remarkable places and incredible buildings that have been standing, weathering the elements and the wars, for many thousands of years. The building in this photo is the Pantheon in Rome. It was first built in 27BC, burnt down, was struck by lightning, was rebuilt in 120AD and has stood ever since. Looking at the building, and the incredible pillars that are holding it up, it’s easy to see why the structure has been standing for almost 2000 years. Except, the pillars are not the reason why the Pantheon has stood for so long, it’s the foundation the pillars are standing on. If the foundation wasn’t strong enough, the pillars would have collapsed centuries earlier.

Joyful logevity is about... Three little words!

Posted 10/27/2019

I have been in the health, fitness, wellbeing, wellness – or whatever else you want to call it – industry for 30 years. For many years I believed I could convince people to make better choices, eat better, train effectively and live a longer, happier and healthier life. I was wrong. I always thought that the more I knew about the body, its physiology and what would lead to greater health, the better. Again, I was wrong. I was confused with all the science, research, opinions, strategies and ideas about what it takes to be live a healthy life. I spent too much time reading and learning. I used to think that people actually wanted to be healthy. Again, I was wrong. What I now know is that people want to live their best life, for as long as possible, and, that all comes down to three little words.

All it takes is... A little courage!

Posted 10/19/2019

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying; everything you want, but don't yet have, is on the other side of your comfort zone. Does it annoy you as much it does me? People who say it, often have a smug look on their face, like, the cat who got the canary, or, the penguin who woke the polar bear with symbols, and, survived! Do you ever want to slap these people and tell them, that your life is okay, and you don’t need them prancing around telling you what you should and shouldn’t do? Me too!

Your destiny is greater than your history!

Posted 10/11/2019

What I admire and envy about children most is that they have much less history to drag them down than we adults do. They believe they can do anything. They have visions of grandeur. They believe they will change the world, be famous, fly to the moon and live a life of adventure. There is no limit to the imagination of children, and they honestly believe their dreams will become reality. Do you remember what you dreamed of as a child? Do you remember knowing, without a shadow of a doubt, that it would happen for you? Did you ever fly down a mountain on a bike, or Jump off a roof, believing you could fly? Did you ever hold that pretend microphone in your hands, singing like a superstar, and, absolutely believe it would happen? We all did, because at that time in our life, our destiny was far greater than our history.

Make the decision, and then... You can dance!

Posted 10/4/2019

As I am writing this blog, I am sitting on a flight from LA to Melbourne, on my way home after a spectacular month in the USA. By the time you are reading it, I will be back on home turf, and planning my next assault on the world. For the last month I have met some amazing people, been able to share my message to different groups, and, I can now see opportunities open up, before my very eyes, to take my purpose to the next level. There are so many amazing memories that I bring with me as I return home, but one lady, in particular, has inspired me beyond words. Her story will change many lives and empower numerous people to stand up and dance, when maybe, they don’t think they can.
