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.'

Be proud of being called, the... Dumbest in town!

Posted 2/15/2019

It’s interesting what many people perceive as dumb, stupid or weird. I think anyone doing things differently to the majority can easily be seen in that light. Different scares many people. Different seems wrong to the mainstream. Different makes people look like they are not quite with it. The fact is that different often represents genius, achievement and innovation. It is my goal in life is to live differently, be different and achieve different, so I am okay with being seen as dumb, stupid or weird. I hope you feel the same and won’t get offended, but will be complimented when you are called dumb.

The strategy will work, if you... Work the strategy!

Posted 2/8/2019

I wish I could give you better news. I wish I could tell you that success was easy. I wish I could tell you just one call, one submission, one request, one presentation, one audition, one practice or one effort is all that’s required to experience abundant and exponential success. I think you knew it already, but it’s not. You already knew it, didn’t you? If we know this, why do we give up on things so readily? Why do we stop trying and judge our results too early? Why don’t we commit to a strategy until we are successful, even if it takes longer that we want?

Go to the folder every day and… Delete the junk!

Posted 2/1/2019

I was sitting at my computer thinking about what I want to write about this week, when I was notified about emails in my inbox. I looked, they were all junk, so I moved them into the junk folder. I then went to my junk folder to see it was full of lots of rubbish, so with one simple hit of a button, I deleted 100’s of junk mail. It felt great to have an empty junk folder. Like magic, this week’s blog topic came to me. How many of us are carrying around junk, when it’s so simple to hit the delete button?

Look for optimal wellbeing in... The right places!

Posted 1/26/2019

As I launch my newest book, The Wellness Puzzle, I’m excited because I know, deep in my heart, it will change the lives of the people who read it, are open to the ideas it presents and act on the things that relate to them. I’ve had a strong belief for quite a while, and, it’s the main reason I wrote the book. I believe there is so much devastating sickness, disease, obesity, depression, allergies, mental health issues and all of the other conditions, in this current day, for one main reason. Now, I know people don’t want to be unhealthy, and I know people are more proactive now than ever. So the question is, why are we getting sicker, fatter and less healthy? I believe it’s because we are looking for the solutions in the wrong places.

You'll change your life when you... Change your labels!

Posted 1/19/2019

Are you ready to change your life? If not, please pass this on to someone who is. If yes, great. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? When you think about your ability in different areas, what words do you use? When you consider the character traits you describe yourself with, what are they? When you think about the way you connect and communicate with people, how do you describe it? Now, the most important question; when you look at how you are, the life you lead and things you are achieving, how does it relate to the words you have used to to describe the different areas just I touched on? If the outcomes you’re getting are consistent with the labels you’re using, it may be time to change the labels

Keep hanging on... while others are letting go!

Posted 1/12/2019

Two weeks into a new year, and it’s blatantly obvious that 2019 is going to go fast, maybe even faster than the last year if that’s at all possible. Without even realising what’s happening, we can easily end up being a spectator to other people’s success and achievements as we look back at another year and another wasted opportunity to move closer to living the life we desire. So then, the secret to not letting the year slip past and the key to making sure you maximise 2019 and achieve the things you have set for yourself is to, keeping hanging on to what you want, while people all around are letting go.

In 2019, commit to... Thinking Big

Posted 1/5/2019

We are here, in 2019. Wow, can you believe it? Another year gone and a new one ahead. I want to encourage you to do something that maybe very different and very scary for you, as you head into 2019. I want to suggest that you believe more, expect more and dream more about what is possible for you this year. I want to ask that you let go of the past, the mistakes, the failures and the poor choices. I want to propose that you take the lid of your brain and… Think Big!

It's simple, each day, to pull a weed!

Posted 12/28/2018

I am so not a gardener. I am not inspired by gardening, I don’t dream about gardening and I really don’t even enjoy gardening. I do, however, love looking at beautiful gardens, I love walking through gardens and I love sitting in our backyard, that Laura has so wonderfully tended to, and enjoying the sounds, the smells, the calmness and the serenity. I just don’t want to be the person who does the backbreaking work to get it to that condition.

You need to risk loss to... Experience Joy!

Posted 12/21/2018

I have to admit it… it’s been a tough week or so. I have had dogs as a child, but I have never been as emotionally invested as I was with our beautiful Mr Big. I honestly had no idea how hard it would be making the decision to end his life, even though it was the best thing for him, and then to deal with the grief that comes with losing someone close. The last 10 days since he passed has been littered with tears, with regrets, with heartbreak and with unsettling thoughts as to  whether, if we’d done things differently, maybe he would still be with us. What I do know, amongst all the pain, the heartache and the tears, is that the overwhelming feelings, both Laura and I have, are love and joy. An intense love for this little dog and joy that he was with us for 16 years.

Make the most of... Every opportunity!

Posted 12/15/2018

It’s with a heavy heart I write this blog. Laura and I had to make the hardest decision of our lives this week. Our beautiful dog, Mr Big, had been unwell and declining rapidly since we returned from Italy. A visit to the vet and some blood tests showed serious kidney and liver issues. He had lost a lot of weight, was not eating or drinking and was in a lot of discomfort. It broke both of our hearts, but on the vet's recommendation and with his best interests in mind, we chose to peacefully end his suffering. This blog is written, with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat, as a dedication to a little man who changed our lives, and one who made the most of every second of and every opportunity in his sixteen years on this planet. It’s my hope as you read this, you will stop procrastinating and get up to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way.
