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.'

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.

To move on in life... Let go of Harry!

Posted 7/13/2018

You are amazing. You have incredible potential. You have the talent, ability, strength, courage and resilience to do pretty much anything you set your mind to, no matter how unqualified you think you are or how unlikely it may seem. So, the question that you, and I, need to be asking is; what is stopping us from getting on with the job, and, getting it done? If you’re anything like me, in certain areas of your life, you’ve tried, persisted, attempted, failed, fallen and wondered why you couldn’t break through. The answer… Let go of Harry!

Incredible gifts lie on the... Other side of fear!

Posted 7/7/2018

Have you ever found yourself doing okay in life, but with an inner feeling that something is missing? You know; your career’s going okay, your health is pretty good, your relationships are not bad, but, something, you can’t quite put your finger on, is being overlooked. I was feeling that way, and it was impacting the depth of enjoyment, fulfillment and significance I was experiencing in my life. Then a great mentor and friend of mine made a suggestion.

Your success relies on... Support of others!

Posted 6/29/2018

The hardest times in my life were when I thought I was all alone and had to relyon myself for my success. I’m not sure why, but from a young age, I thought that asking for the help and support of others was a sign of weakness. I struggled with many things in life, never really creating the success I wanted, until the penny finally dropped. I had tried to run through my last brick wall and do it all myself, for the last time. ‘There must be an easier way,’ I would often think to myself, and then I was handed a book called, The Magic of Thinking Big. This is a book first published in 1959 and still incredibly relevant today. In chapter 10, the author David Schwartz says, ‘Your success in life depends on the support of other people.’

For the sake of your future... Change it now!

Posted 6/22/2018

There are things you are thinking, saying and doing, right now, that seem normal to you. There are also things happening in your life, and will continue to happen in your life, that you don’t quite understand, and, are not all that happy about. What I want you to think about, as you are reading this week’s blog, is, if the two are any way related. In other words, if you were to really analyse it, are the things you are thinking, saying and doing in any way responsible for the outcomes you are getting that you don’t understand or like? I know, that’s a pretty heavy start to the blog, but, there is no time to waste. Life is short, and if anything you are thinking, saying or doing is holding you back, then, change it… now!

Of all creatures, choose to... Be the Cockroach!

Posted 6/16/2018

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be an animal or creature of some sort? I have always looked at the lives of our two fluffy-four-legged babies (dogs) and thought about what a pretty cushy and fun life it would be. I often look into the sky, watch birds gliding gracefully and think how amazing it would be to be able to fly. Of all the animals, birds and creatures I have thought about being, cockroaches have never crossed my mind, until recently.

When you want answers, look... In the right places!

Posted 6/9/2018

One of the main reasons we’re often unable to find the answers to questions or solutions to problems is because we are looking in the wrong places. There are people looking in trashy magazines for the answers to their health & weight problems. Wrong! There are people who look to their job and rate of pay for the answers to their financial problems. Wrong again! Often, the places we see an issue is outside of ourselves, when really we, ourselves, are the problem.
