How To Build Your Mental Toughness To An Elite Level & Begin Achieving Exactly what You Want

These are the exact mindset principles I learned while serving in Special Operations.

Elite Mindset Development
Physical Training & Nutrition
A Support Network Like No Other

Get The Operator Edge by training for any contingency that may arise...

Mental toughness, resilience, persistence, situational awareness, trainability, endurance, strength and work capacity are all elements required to develop an elite mindset. Begin developing your physical and mental capabilities and be ready for anything life throws at you.


Build unwavering mental toughness. Learn, grow & develop into the person you need to be to complete your mission. 

Stress Control

The #1 critical element for achieving any tough goal... learning how to control and management your stress responses.

Work Capacity

Physical training and mental toughness go hand-in-hand. You'll require both to fulfil your potential - this is crucial.


Ensure you're providing your body with the correct fuel to enhance your physical and mental resilience training.

Now the problem with mindset or mental toughness development, achieving your goals and improving your life is that it often seems like a constant battle. It’s a battle to build your confidence, get motivated and keep that motivation going, to remain focused and committed and on track with your mission or plan….

Often people will set goals, build a plan to reach those goals, even plan for things to go wrong within that plan. You’ll somehow manage to get motivated and action some processes and actually start out on your journey to reaching your target…

...but then you start to lose motivation, you begin to fall back into old and bad habits, your focus and drive decreases and then you hit some roadblocks and then some more roadblocks and everything seems to be conspiring against you…

...and all of a sudden you stop putting in the effort and convince yourself that you actually didn’t even really want that goal anyway, that you really couldn’t be bothered, that it’s somebody else’s fault that you can’t continue…

...and you're back to square one, stuck back in the same old place you were before with the same old problems and that goal or dream you originally had seems way too hard… you’ll never get there.
Well at least you gave it a crack right? At least you had a go?

Well not so fast!

Anybody can give it a crack. Anybody can take a few steps towards a goal, anybody can get up early and get things done for a few days.

But it’s those who can do it consistently, it’s those who can remain focused and motivated and those able to navigate every hurdle thrown in front of them, it’s those people who persist who will actually be the winners and eventually reach their goals.

And trust me, I know. After years of trying and many, many setbacks and failures, I finally achieved my goal of making it into Special Forces. I should have never even been in the Army with my medical background, but I joined anyway and I persisted and remained focused and motivated in my mission to get the job done and become a Commando….

… and you can do the same.

I'm telling you, you can Actually Achieve the Goals You Want. You can learn to develop the mental toughness strategies required to improve your life and get exactly what you want.

So if you want to get out of the rut you're stuck in, get and keep motivated, build your confidence, instil good habits and break bad ones, learn how to become more emotionally intelligent and deal with anything that comes your way and progress your life to exactly where you want it... in order to become happier, more fulfilled, more content, tougher and more resilience, then you're in exactly the right place so keep reading...

Now with so much information on physical training out there, but very limited information on mindset and performance training, it's either...

1. Hard to know what's correct and even harder to know what's relevant in relation to physical training, or

2. Almost impossible to find any actual information on how to go about building your mental toughness

And that's why I developed this...

the operator edge Complete Package

Now choosing your target or mission and being able to set clear and defined goals, construct a step by step plan to go after it and bulletproof your mission to overcome any obstacles, is one thing...

... but there's so much more to developing your mental resilience.

Self-mastery, emotional intelligence, decisive action, a personal foundation plan, fighting through roadblocks, changing habits, motivation, body language, stress control, discipline and stress inoculation...

...and much, much more.

The Operator Edge Complete Package details simple, proven and effective mental resilience strategies that once learned will be with you for the rest of your life.

Begin thinking, training and acting like an elite soldier, learning and developing the physical and mental skills to apply immediately to your everyday life.

Skills designed to have you performing at your optimal capacity.

All in a matter of weeks.

And all of this is waiting for you within the membership site for which you'll have lifetime access.

I served in the Army and Special Forces for 10 years full time and 2 years part time.

My Special Forces Selection process began with 170 Soldiers attempt it and ended with 15 Soldiers succeeding.

From that initial 170 applicants who attempted the Special Forces Entry Test, 100 made it onto the Commando Selection and Training Course (CSTC).

Over the course of 5 weeks, that number was reduced to 26 candidates who finally finished the Selection course.

23 candidates were chosen to continue onto the reinforcement cycle for further training.

15 of us finally made it into the unit.

That's an attrition rate of over 90%!

this pack will have you employing the exact Mindset and physical training methods

I used while in Special Forces and the same methods I still use today to ensure I hit all the goals I set.

I actually use these methods and principles everyday.

In addition to many years serving in the Military and Special Operations where I developed these principles, I train my client base on a daily basis utilising the elements within this course to ensure fast, proven and long lasting results.

Imagine what it would be like to know with full confidence, that you are on the right path in your preparation to tackle your goals by learning the key components to forming a bulletproof plan and developing the resilient mindset of a Special Forces Soldier at the same time.

This Mindset Course will do just that and is designed to build your confidence, motivation, self-reliance and self-belief ensuring you have the key elements you NEED to successfully achieve your mission.

here's an insight into What you'll discover In this package...

Training to win - Why elite soldiers ALWAYS train to win and never to fail. This is crucial in setting a winning mentality and will ensure YOU leave any situation with a positive and confident attitude.
Keep it simple stupid - The ridiculously simple KISS method & why it has worked for millennia. This methodology will ensure you DO NOT over-complicate your mission and any tasks within that mission. It will ensure your plans are easily and quickly implemented, executed with ease and yield more reliable and predictable results.
Situational Awareness - This will build your awareness and keep you in the moment. Develop your situational awareness and you’ll begin to see things before they happen. This is an excellent tool to acquire as you’ll be able to foresee problems before they arise and prevent them from ever occurring. Good situational awareness will provide you with a sense of control, a sense of awareness and calmness that will allow you to overcome any setbacks quickly and continue to move forward.
Breaking Habits - Discover the science behind breaking bad habits and instilling new, positive ones. Learn how to identify what habits you need and/or want to break and implement exact processes to overcome these habits. This will ensure YOU take control of your actions and rid yourself of negative habits and replace them with positive, concrete and life-changing good habits.
EQ - The true meaning of Emotional Intelligence (yes, it's ok to get pissed off sometimes). Emotional intelligence is a vital element to mental toughness. It will allow you to become self-aware and acknowledge your emotions. You will gain emotional self-control, which will enable you to keep motived and driven, remain humble and employ calm, clear and focused decision-making processes.
Stress Inoculation - The more you are exposed to stressful situations, the more you will condition your mind and body to react as you would like. Gain the ability of a Special Forces Soldier to operate under extremely stressful environments in a clear, calm and collected manner.
Self-Mastery - Discover how to gain control over the only true thing you can control at any time and in any situation: you. Self-mastery is all about creating the life for yourself that you want to live, based upon your beliefs, core values, principles, morals and attitude. Mastering yourself will grant you the ability to control your physical, mental and emotional actions and reactions in any given situation.
Small Wins Phenomenon - Learn to build powerful momentum every single day with this proven strategy. Complete an unlimited number of daily 'small wins' and set a pattern of success hurtling you forward to reaching whatever goals you set.

And much, much more!

I just wish i'd had access to a package like this years ago...


Whether it’s a career in the Military you’re after or simply want to improve your life, this package is a must have.

Have you heard of the expression: “Been there done that?”

Well I have!

I've already done all the hard work, made all the mistakes and figured out what works (and what doesn’t). And believe me, I made some mistakes by “being there and doing that” along the way…

…I did this for a long time in Special Forces and still do it today for a living.

That’s why I’ve been so careful over the years to document WHAT WORKS into a simple, easy-to-follow, progressive program to be able to pass onto my clients and those looking to develop their mental toughness.

So now you don’t have to go it alone!

here's what others are saying about the Complete Package...


I wish to say a big thank you as your advice has helped me a lot. It has helped me to see things from a totally different view. Your mindset advice has helped me overcome the walls I have hit and helped me move past them. It's easy to find advice but hard to find the right advice. I find it amazing that I can get advice from such an accomplished person as yourself. All your advice has not only helped me but has helped change my 8 year old son's life - so thank you Rhys.

Joe Alexis


This is simply a fantastic course! I have gone through a lot of similarly styled courses over the years of my working life and all pale by comparison. Wish I had come across this years ago. The skills taught just simply make sense and they work.

I had intended to make a number of life changes and grow for a long time, but my goal setting and low confidence were hindering me from taking certain steps. After purchasing the Complete Package to address those issues I was pleasantly surprised to find that many of the other personal development areas and life skills I needed to work on were also addressed! Rhys' no nonsense approach and down to earth delivery are very 'real'. This is an excellent place to start when seeking to enact a life change.

Nathan Reeves

I work on a drill rig in a highly stressful and competitive industry. We are always under the pump and need to be performing at a high level. The Operator Edge Mindset course is helping me to maintain a peak level of mental toughness to tackle the tasks at work effectively and as part of a team. A flow on effect is an improved personal life with focusing on, and achieving goals. To fix my car I use a mechanic, for money matters I use a financial advisor, and to stay focused and always achieving I follow the Operator Edge training and peer support network. Making excellence a daily habit.
