Encouraging teens to develop great habits, resilience and self-belief

It’s a long time since I’ve been a teenager, but I can tell you with certainty that the life I live today is the result of the ‘talk’ which occured when I was in my teens. The ‘talk’ I had with my peers, the talk I had with my parents, the talk I had with teachers and people of influence, most importantly, the ‘talk’ I had with myself.

The time to set-up an amazing life, have a lasting impact and create generational change, is as a teenager.

Andrew will:

  • Entertain, educate and empower students to dream more, believe more, do more and achieve more at school and in life.
  • Focus on self-esteem, self-belief, resiliency, respectful relationships, goals and transitioning to a successful life after school.
  • Inspire staff and parents, even more, to help and equip teenagers to be the best they can be.
  • Help teens develop great habits to create optimal wellbeing for themselves and their future families, for generations to come.
  • Encourage and equip aspiring writers to become successful published authors.

Andrew’s presentation to our Year 12 students was extremely powerful, thought provoking and high energy! He was able to motivate the senior students to think deeply about the importance of resilience in their lives. A great presentation which inspired the young adults to ‘keep on striving’ for their passions and aspirations… Great stuff!”

On Monday 17 June, ex-AFL Footballer, author and speaker Andrew Jobling visited the Year 11s for a Tutorial workshop. Students were lucky to have a visit from Jobling, who ended up as a professional senior football player for the St Kilda Football Club, as well as “accidentally” becoming an author.

Jobling spoke to students about resilience and perseverance in an interactive workshop, where excited students contributed their goals and exactly how they plan on reaching them.

One key thing students learnt was the ‘T.E.A.R.S’ Principle, which encourages us to keep trying and enact a plan, in order for us to achieve our goals.

I really enjoyed Andrew’s Tutorial session! He engaged us all and made us all feel valued for our goals, whether they were ‘small’ or ‘big’ ones,” said Finn Deacey, Andrew House.

Another student, Oscar Bernet, Rutter House, said “It was a really inspiring session, and something I can actually look back on and will have value for my future.”

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 encouraged them to 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.

Thank you for inspiring the students at Auburn Primary School to chase their dreams, work hard and get back up when they may be knocked down. Your enthusiasm was infectious, with your stories, jokes and life lessons captivating students from Prep to Grade 6. Thank you for a memorable afternoon.

Natasha Engelhardt

PE Teacher, Aurburn Primary School

As part of our Positive Education Program, our Y9 students had the opportunity to work with Andrew around the topics of Positive Purpose and the role resilience and goal setting plays within that.

Year Nines are no easy task to engage on a Friday afternoon, but he had them captivated, involved and planning their futures. His genuine knack for storytelling, without sugar coating the realities of his successes, hooked the kids and gave them something to connect to – having a purpose and deciding on the action you are taking to achieving it.

I am in Year 9 and last term you came to our school to talk about your story. You gave us some of your books. I also got one – Accidental Author – and you signed on it, too. I read it and it was just an awesome book. It has had a big effect on my life and I love it. Your book has given me a lot of confidence that I can write my own book. I also read about your story. It was so inspiring. You’ve been through a lot of things and you’ve also faced a lot of hardships and that you’ve never gave up on something. I really appreciate that. You also mentioned your Mum’s story in your book and it was so sad that your mother passed away from that cancer. I wish everyone had a mother like your Mum. Overall, I can’t describe how much I loved your book. It was perfect, uplifting, inspiring and very easy to read and understand. Your book was astonishing and I wish you a very successful life in the future. I can’t wait to read your other books.

Andrew had all our students up and involved in the session. Our students took from it simple and easy to follow advice on how to tackle their future and set some excellent goals for themselves both academically and personally. Great presentation.

The year eleven students had the privilege of meeting and hearing from retired football star turned author Andrew Jobling. He provided a motivational seminar which consisted of lifestyle coaching and interactive activities. The event revolved around the concept of success and how to reach our goals. I particularly enjoyed the portion of the session where we were given pieces of paper and asked to trade with our classmates, and write compliments about each other. The result was a full list of nice things we can read to ourselves when we are feeling down. Andrew encouraged us to see success as an outcome of our actions, and tailored his speech to make it relevant to our future studies or employment prospects. He concluded the event by giving us copies of his books and personalised autographs.

Andrew Jobling was very engaging, and, the goal setting activity entitled T.E.A.R.S. of joy was heard to be quoted by students two days after his visit. Students were heard to be telling friends that , “ you can achieve anything you believe” , so, it was great to get the kids to write goals and then work out how they can actually achieve that goal by putting action steps into place. The fact that students were talking about changing habits to achieve their goals can only set them up for success later in life. It was great to hear this message in Year 7 and 8, at a time when students are learning from their mistakes. His message of Success being connected to routine, action, emotion and thought in a respectful, encouraging and supportive environment was a vital life message.
