These are the EXACT mindset principles I learned with serving in Special Operations.

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.

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 plan. You’ll somehow manage to get motivated and action some process 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 change bad habits, 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, more resilient, 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 actually information on how to go about building your mental toughness

And that's why I developed this…

The Operator Edge Complete Package



Within this program you will be 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.

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, Combat Breathing, Discipline, 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 this is waiting for you within the membership site to which you now have 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, 90 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.
  • Emotional Intelligence - 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.
  • 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 you 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.
  • 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 operator 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.
  • 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.
  • The 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 hurting 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 read reviews, checked out who this Rhys Dowden fella is, listened to a couple of radio interviews, watched some clips, body language, tone of voice, even took notice how he answered comments on his page. I came to the conclusion that this bloke is genuine, he’s not trying to be someone he's not, he's not just after your cash, he believes in his material because he lives his material. He tells you the good, bad and the ugly and doesn't "conveniently" leave out info just to piss in your pocket to "sell" his product. This bloke actually wants you to succeed and do life well and do it with excellence.

Cameron Brown

This mindset course is an in-depth, informative and easy to follow course which can be applied to many aspects of life. Rhys is continuously in touch with motivational videos and messages. I've noticed a real change in mindset since working through the package. I'm kicking goals everyday. Thanks Rhys.

Here's what you're getting within each Module...

This module is all about learning the warrior mindset and developing a fierce and tenacity attitude. You’ll gain confidence from all your past victories and move from the intent phase into the commitment phase with purpose and aggression and actually take action on your goals. You’ll discover what it is you truely want, if you’re not currently sure by conducting a ‘peak state’ goal setting activity… and is for those who are unsure in which direction to take their lives. You’ll learn to set clear and defined goals and plan your mission down to the last detail and bulletproof it by creating your ‘actions on’ to combat any roadblocks you may encounter.

In this module you’ll get real clear on your vision, mission and core values and begin to form your life around these values.You’ll also learn how to develop your emotional intelligence by implementing my 6 elements to emotional intelligence. Emotionally intelligent people are more motivated, get more done, remain focused, keep calm and are able to gain perspective over their emotions and continually move forward. You’ll also learn how habits are formed and discover how to break bad habits and set healthy and solid good habits ensuring every time you even think about falling back into your old habits, you’ll have clear processes to get back on track.

This module is all about Self mastery. Mastering yourself will grant you the ability to control your physical, mental and emotional actions and reactions in any given situation. You’ll also learn about the importance of body language and how you can actually change your mood simply by changing your body language.

In this module you’ll learn how to better deal with stress by employing a proven combat breathing method I used in Afghanistan to help me in highly stressful situations. This will keep you calm and focused when stressed enabling you to make clear and rational decisions with clarity and forethought.

You’ll also develop your situational awareness in this module and learn to live in the moment and understand your surroundings by choosing to be aware. This will not only save you from possible danger, but also your loved ones.

You’ll also discover how powerful your reticular activating system is and how you can program it to alert you of anything that will help in your mission to achieve your goals.

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.

Daryl Shepard

I recommend this course for anyone wishing to motivate themselves into a positive state of mind. The course is based upon a  structured set of tools, advice and professional tips, which will help you to organise your life.

Trevor Gunning

This module will teach you the Commando attributes and traits. These are the same attributes and traits we live by in Commandos to ensure success in everything we do and how you can develop the same attitude and positive mental state.


This module is going to teach you why having an ‘all or nothing’ attitude and constantly diving head first into situations is simply not the best way to go about moving forward and achieving what you want. It equally may have a negative impact on your progress and force you into unnecessary setbacks.

You’ll also learn how to forge stronger willpower and how to limit the reserves you already have, which will enable you to save your willpower for those times you really need it.


This is all about time management, prioritising and performance. Here you’ll learn who and what should be you number 1 priority and how making this so will create a happier, healthy and more fulfilled life.

You’ll also discover the slow is smooth, smooth is fast method and learn how employing it will give you the patience to remain calm and think of the long term outcomes rather then focusing on the immediate results.

You’ll also learn how to forge stronger willpower and how to limit the reserves you already have, which will enable you to save your willpower for those times you really need it.

After completing module one I had an opportunity to achieve a goal I had for a long time. Everything went wrong leading up to the day and without a doubt I usually would have just said "bugger it" and quit. BUT I put into action what I had learnt in module one!! I showed up and achieved the goal, turned a nightmare into an awesome result. With what I learned from only the first module...

Jesse Hall

Your mindset course has given me the foundation to be able to take anything on board and stay strong through the experiences no matter how tough it might appear. Because of what you have shown me I get excited by any challenge and am grateful for it as i know its my chance to grow stronger and better. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow stronger and become a better person.
