Hi. My name is Dean. I just turned 49 (I know I'm old) and I can honestly say that my life has never been better. I lost 40 lbs and have kept it off for 4 years and counting. I wrote and traditionally published my first book even though English was always my worst subject in school. And I was finally able to quit my day job (I was a teacher for 17 years) to form a successful online education company.

What is more startling however, is that all of this happened after the age of 45 - an age where you might think it would be way too late for someone to change their lot in life.

I am proof that it is never TOO late for you or anyone else to flip life's plan on its head and create something that is truly spectacular.

Do you want to know the secret as to how I did it? I used the habits I share in this course to do all of those things I mentioned above and more.


You see I wasn't born with any special skills that make me unique to the world. I was just a regular guy working hard and doing a lot of the popular stuff people said I shoud be doing to create change, yet getting virtually no return for my efforts.

That finally started to change when I began to study how successful people got results. Now I when I tell you the answer I am fairly certain you are going to be as surprised I was with this discovery, but it turns out they are just like you and I except for this one thing that they do.

And it is not what you might think. The biggest myth out there about really successful people is that they DO things the unsuccessful don't. But that isn't actually true.

After researching and interviewing hundreds of these people I was finally able to crack their code.

They THINK differently than everyone else so that when they do take action it is deliberate and intelligent. As a result they accomplish things most people can only dream about doing.

So lets back to why this insight is GREAT news for you. That thought process they use is not something they were born with. It is something they learned.

And I am going to teach it to you.

Picture for a moment how your life will change once you learn to master the habits I teach in this course. Never again will you have to worry about a lack of willpower in any area of your life because you will know how to create it at will (pun most definitely intended) whether you are looking to lose weight, eliminate your credit card debt, be more confident in areas where insecurity runs rampant or be more productive with the free time you do have so you can create an income generating product on the side.

Imagine what it would sound like to finally lose those stubborn pounds you have been carrying around for years and have friends and family constantly commenting on how great you look.

Or visualize how your life will change if you finally wrote that book or designed that course or created that app that will launch your lifestyle business. How amazing would it be to escape 9 to 5, work from anyhwere you want and be a part of what best selling author Tim Ferriss calls the NEW RICH.

How amazingly different could your life become if you finally learned how to think like the truly successful do? What if you stopped doing stuff for the sake of doing stuff and only took deliberate intelligent action? What could you create? Who could you become? What kind of people would you attract into your life?

If you want to get the answers to those questions, then you are ready to get started with the course right now. Just head over to the top right of this page and click on "Take this course." You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

See you on the inside.

People have asked me if that worries me. To be honest it doesn't for two reasons. First, 99% of people out there are like you-they are good people. Second, I am a big believer in the what goes around comes around approach: "Live gives to the givers and takes from the takers."


Here is some really honest and authentic praise for the course.

"Dean's course was comprehensive, full of innovative — and yet simple — ideas, and enjoyable. Dean's personality is pretty hilarious, and he's not afraid to share some of his own humbling experiences to get his points across. He also effectively utilizes the experiences of others to illustrate key points. Between that, his sense of humor and the multitude of tips and tools this course provided, it was worth every penny. I finished the course feeling like I had a shot at rewriting the history that kept repeating itself, and also an understanding of why I'd failed in certain areas. Moreover, the course reinforced tools I already have, and allowed me to think about how I had used them to succeed in the past. I didn't put those things together until I took the course and could see with clarity what worked and why. I have no doubt I will reference this course material for years to come and that it will continue my personal "Katholution."

-Katherine Cobb

Best ever course I have done on Internet

I am only half way through the course but can't wait till the end to write this review. I came across this course when I was desperately trying to overcome a decade old habit - which was not good for my long term health and my current plans to lose weight. I thought I lacked willpower and did not know how to have a stronger self to do what I really wanted instead of what I was doing.

I came across this course on udemy, read a few reviews and decided to give this course a try! I am very very happy with the results. I have been able to overcome such a chronic habit in a matter of 7 days. I am literally off it. I love this course. All the advice, tips and techniques taught are very very practical and can be used in any area of life you are struggling in. I think I will keep coming back to it. Thanks Dean!

Instructor Biography

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,

    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!
