Your Power to Change - Author Interview



Kyle C. Becker

Your Power to Change




Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.


I was born in Alaska but my family moved back to Washington when I was 2.  I have lived here ever since. I lived in the Kent, WA area for 30 of those years. (I am 44 as I type this) I don’t have much of a formal education as I got into some trouble when I was younger. I chose to learn some life lessons the hard way. I have never stopped learning though. Ever since I was 21 I have been reading some sort of self help book and applying those principles to my life. I received my Life Coaching and NLP Master Practitioner Certifications through the  They have a great program and focus their training on transformative techniques. I have two sons, 25 and 20 years old. My strength and my joy. I have learned so much from them and grown so much by being their father. I have been married twice. Once for 17 years with the mother of my sons and the second for two years.


What inspired you to author your book?



I have been working a very steady self growth program for the past 8 years spurred on by the beating I took from my alcoholism. I had to surrender everything I new and be willing to change everything in my life in order to survive and stay sober. The program of Alcoholics Anonymous is heavy on character development and forgiving others and being forgiven. Chapters 4 and 5 of my book are influenced greatly by this.


There was a very special moment in June of 2019 that changed my life forever. I was sitting at my desk in the morning, doing my love list, and I was overcome with a joy like I had never known before. Tears of joy wet my face and I said out loud, “All the moments of my life have been forgiven.” Every resentment and regret that I had ever had was gone. There was no guilt or shame whatsoever. I felt as if I had been reborn. I vowed in that moment to share this feeling with as many people as I could while I was still on this Earth. This became the sole focus of my life, for the rest of my life. I left a good career, sold my home, went back to school, and so much more in order to make this happen. I had to be willing to change everything in order to make this happen. I have changed so much, and in doing so, I have grown so much.


Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?


I like the idea of a sunrise and a new beginning. I write about this a lot in my book. Yesterday doesn’t exist. It doesn’t matter what your life has been up to this point or how you have showed up in your life. You can be whoever you want to be and live the life you want to live moving forward. Every day when we wake up we have the opportunity to live the life of our dreams. Success isn’t about the destination, it's about the journey. So as soon as we take our first steps towards our dreams we are in fact living the dream.


Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?


There are so many great authors and philosophers, in fact to many to name them all. My greatest role models have been Buddha and Jesus Christ. My favorite authors right now are James Allen, Napoleon Hill, Echkart Tolle, Michael Singer, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.


What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?


It seems like every day in the past 2 years I have been doing something outside of my comfort zone. Doing something I haven’t done before. Learning something new. For most of the 2 years I didn’t know what the next step was going to be. I had a solid vision of my dream and knew that if I kept doing the next indicated right thing, taking that next logical step, that the next step would be revealed to me. That the universe would guide me and no matter what I had to do that I would be able to learn how to do it. The only time I truly struggled is when I resisted the guidance that the universe was sending me and when I resisted the lesson it was trying to teach me. All of my suffering and struggle in my life has been self chosen. It has been a decision and choice that I have made. I write a lot about this in this book.


Tell your readers about your book.


Life doesn’t give us what we want, it gives us what we are. If we want more out of life, we must first become more. If we want our life to change then we must first be willing to change ourselves. All the power we will ever need is with us. This book will help you find your power, develop it, and wield it.


Who is your target audience, and why?


Every human being who is unhappy with their life. Every human being that has given up hope of a better life. Every human being that is looking to take their life to the next level. Every human being that wants to be happy, joyous, and free. We have it in our power to become our most magnificent selves and live our most magnificent lives. We have it in our power to create our most magnificent world. There is nothing we cannot do. The power is within us.


If you were going to give one reason for anyone looking at your book to read, why should they buy it?


They should buy it because they were put on this Earth to become their most magnificent self and live their most magnificent life. They are here to realize the power with in themselves and evolve. This book will help them do that.


What do you consider your greatest success in life?


My greatest success in life is getting to a place where I can honestly say that I love every human being in the world. That love in my heart, and the serenity I feel when I let go allow my higher power to work miracles in my life and the life of others, these are my two greatest successes.


What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?


I think we are all unique. I think we are all trying to communicate the same message, just with different semantics and from different angles. Science, religion, spirituality, all trying to discover and communicate the same truth. I accept everyone’s opinion as being one piece of a great puzzle to which there are 7+ billion pieces.



How do you overcome writer’s block?


I never had it. I was inspired to write this book and 4 weeks later it was written. It was very inspired. In fact, the first time I read it I couldn’t believe some of the truth that came through me.


What one piece of advice do you have for new authors.


Believe that you can write that great work that you have always dreamed of writing. There is a message that you were born to share with the world. Share that message. Allow it to flow through you. The world needs to read what you have to say.


Tell your readers anything else you want to share.


Deep down inside you is a dream and vision for your life. It’s probably one that you have never told anyone about because you were afraid they would tell you that you were crazy or tell you that you couldn’t do it. Reconnect with that vision for you life. Create a burning desire to live that dream. And take the first step towards it. The universe cannot guide you and show you the way if you are standing still.
