  • Dean Dwyer Bestselling uDemy Instructor, Inventor of New Thinking Tools

    Hey there. If you are just hearing about me and my story for the first time, let me fill you on some things you don't know.

    My name is Dean and I am from Canada. Along with being a proud Canadian, I am 49 years old and I could not be happier or more excited with the life I now lead.

    But it wasn't always that way. I was your classic late (very very very late) bloomer.

    Up until I was 45 I was...

    1. trapped in a body I could not change
    2. stuck in a job I did not like
    3. living a life I was not particularly thrilled with

    But one day everything changed when I discovered an incredibly simple secret.

    I learned how to think about my own thinking.

    I know that sounds weird, but it has been amazing what I have been able to accomplish as a result of that discovery. It led to other breakthroughs which then evolved into one of the best ideas I have ever created.


    That mindset led me to create thinking tools that have allowed me to accomplish extraordinary things.

    1. I lost 40lbs and have kept it off for over 4 years now
    2. I became a published author at the age of 47
    3. I quit my teaching job and built my very own lifestyle business at 47 as well

    It has been a remarkable ride and the BEST PART is the thinking tools I developed can be used by anyone of any age.

    I am proof that it is never too late for change to happen. You just need to be willing to invest in the right tools so you can tap into your full potential.

    You would be amazed how the right system can optimize your mindset and reward you with magical results.

    All you need to do is be willing to take that leap and make that life changing investment in yourself.

    Why not try out one of my courses and see what it can do for you? All courses come with a rock solid 30-day no questions asked money back guarantee.

    You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING TO GAIN. I hope to see you on the inside my friend.

    Your friendly neighborhood Canadian,

Discover courses made by experts from around the world.

Take your courses with you and learn anytime, anywhere.

Learn and practice real-world skills and achieve your goals.



PRICE CHANGE: I have decided to drop the course price from $149 to $19 for one simple reason. Online education is meant to be accessible and quite frankly, with all the technological advances we have made, it should be cheaper than ever.

But it is not. People are still charging outrageous prices for content where learning is self-directed.

In hindsight, this seems absurd to me so I have decided to do something about it. I am going to make my course affordable to anyone who is looking to upgrade their personal operating system.

This is a course that focuses NOT on telling you what to think, but rather the more important skill of HOW to think about willpower so you can tap into it and have it available in abundance on demand.

I hope the course does for you what it has done and continues to do for me.

To upgrading your Human OS,


    • Belief. All great achievement starts with belief that something truly amazing is possible.

    • Recognize that people don't fail, their systems do. Learn the right system and struggles quickly begin to disappear.

    • Use the system to have success in any area of their life; professional or personal

    • Eliminate bad habits. Examples include procrastination, sugar addiction, self-defeating thoughts, credit card spending, nail biting, complaining, binge eating
    • Recover from setbacks immediately and get right back on track [THIS IS HUGE!]
    • Confidently change any behavior no matter how challenging it might appear
    • This is a course for those who are looking to make an investment in themselves and pay for quality courses that do just that

    Great insights!

    Those ideas given in this course you wouldn't want to miss them. Those ideas gave you the clear perspective on setting habit and making clear the common mistakes you've did in life that you even don't realise!

  • Winston Wisdom Koh
    Awesome Course

    I love it!

  • Lew Flauta
    great course

    it's really packed with information in it. You can tell this program has been refined for awhile. The combination of ideas and stories is really good. Not so detailed that you get bored, not so common that you've heard every story already, and interesting enough that you might look up the hard details if you're interested. I'm currently putting off some college homework I should be doing to try to power through this program. But I know i'll be coming back to revisit the sections again later on. I just want to take everything in once through at least.

  • Jameson
    I feel empowered

    This course combines the best real life "fixes" in one course. I like that it is not cookie cutter, but a "do it yourself". Very thorough and informative. He gives you all the tools for self awareness. Excellent.

  • Bruno Oliveira
    managing your live can be very simple...

    I would like to say that I'm only half past the course, but I'm already applying some of your tactics, which are great because they are simple and practical. It's like we always try harder than we should, when we could just apply simple tactics to get things going. thank you for putting up the course!
