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.'

Don't believe your words... Believe only your actions!

Posted 9/22/2018

Have you ever said that you were going to do something and then not done it? Me too. Has anyone ever said to you that they were going to do something they didn’t ever do? Me too. Have you noticed that some people are really convincing when they speak? So believable that you are sure they will follow-through and do what they have proclaimed? Saying that you are going to do something is actually really easy, doing it… not so. This blog is not about me, nor is it about other people. This week I want to encourage you to do an honest reality check, and, ask if you believe the stories you are selling yourself, or, actually following through with the actions to back them up.

What are you stressing about? Everything is good!

Posted 9/14/2018

When we think about it, we really are incredibly blessed. If you are reading this, you can read. If you are seeing this, you can see. If you are breathing, you are alive. If you’re alive, you are eating and living in a comfortable home, I presume. If you are eating and living, you are earning an income. If you are earning an income, you are giving value to an organisation and/or other people in order to receive that income. If you are adding value to others, you are making a difference in this world. If you are making a difference, then you are fulfilling the purpose you have been born for. And this is just the beginning. With so much to be grateful for and excited about, why do we spend so much of our life stressed and worried?

Your body, bank or buddies don't careā€¦ If you're too busy!

Posted 9/7/2018

Strap yourself in this week, I have a message that I need to share with you, and, it may be uncomfortable to read. I’m actually writing it for myself, so it’s uncomfortable for me to read and to write! If you don’t want to face some truths right now, then maybe it isn’t the blog for you this week. If you have the courage to read it, I applaud you. Here it is; if you’re using, ‘I’m too busy,’ as an excuse to not focus on important things, you will regret it one day.

To see possibility,,, Climb the highest tree!

Posted 8/31/2018

Have you ever heard of a goat climbing a tree? When I came across this picture, it was the first time I had ever seen it. How do they get up there? Why do they want to get up there? They don’t look that comfortable, do they? So, it’s probably not because they have nothing better to do. They are after food they can only find in the trees, but even more importantly, from an elevated position, they can see the lay of the land, any potential danger and they get a vision for their next move. Hmm, interesting!

You only need to... Believe in the next step!

Posted 8/25/2018

With any reality-based goal or aspiration, there are only two possible outcomes. Can you guess what they are? The first potential outcome is the successful achievement of the goal. The second, and only other option, is to give up trying. You may have expected me to say failure, but in my mind, there is no such thing as failure, unless you give up, that is. It may be difficult, it may seem hopeless and it may take patience, persistence and discomfort, but, it is possible if you keep going. There are many examples of this kind of success. In my experience, what stops people is not ability, capacity or knowledge. What stops people is a lack of belief in themselves achieving a successful outcome, hence, they either never start or give up trying.

Life's exciting, when you... Learn something new!

Posted 8/18/2018

It’s very easy to just fall into a routine and rhythm of living, isn’t it? It’s not unusual to find ourselves on automatic pilot, simply getting through the day, without ever really stopping to question what we’re doing. There many people who never check to make sure they’re heading in the right direction or even enjoying what they’re doing. Well, I want to encourage you to shake things up a little this week. I want to challenge you to think about what you’re doing and make a decision to learn something new.

Peanuts are... better than no nuts!

Posted 8/11/2018

This one is for you Pat! The other day I was sitting on a Skype with a fabulous author I am currently working with. She was telling me about lots of work that was coming to her, and I said, 'that's great, so you're making lots of money?'She responded with, 'No, not really, they're only paying peanuts.'  Then I said to her, 'peanuts are better than no nuts.' We both laughed, and she said, 'I bet you're going to write about this in your blog this week.' You are right Pat I am, and, thanks to you, we have a fabulous subject to discuss and reflect on this week.

The dogs may bark, but the... Caravan moves on!

Posted 8/3/2018

The saying, ‘the dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on,’ is an old Arabic proverb. It was used to refer to caravans, or families, travelling together across the lands and through the vast deserts of the Middle East. As they went along, through various communities, dogs would bark at them as the caravan slowly proceeded towards its destination. The barking, whilst annoying, couldn't stop the caravan from continuing on and reaching the end of its journey. In other words, the proverb is suggesting that you should keep moving, striving, aspiring and working towards your goals in life, even if people, circumstances or events try to stop you. A great message, but, important to realise, often the loudest barking is from the dogs in your own head.

No matter what... Don't worry, be happy!

Posted 7/27/2018

‘Here's a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy
Don't worry, be happy now’

What a wonderful song since 1988, written and performed by Bobby McFerrin. When you write a song that has been making people smile for 30 years, when you get an income every time it’s played, when you’ve made multi-millions of dollars from it, then I think it’s fair to say, don’t worry, be happy,’ is an easy position to take. What about, however, when, in every life we have some trouble’?

Stop stumbling in the dark... Turn on the light!

Posted 7/21/2018

Darkness can come in many forms and stages. In some countries, thankfully not Australia, winters are long and dark. In fact, some nations experience all but a few hours of daylight in those long, cold winter days. It is this time of the year, when many people suffer anxiety, depression and sadness. Emotional darkness can affect people when; things don’t go their way, sickness strikes, money struggles occur or relationship issues are happening. We can too often crawl around in the darkness, trying to find some answers, when all we really need to do is simply turn on the light.
