Kyle Spyrides, the Author of ‘Decide Your Destiny’ says that he wrote this book for a very clear reason: To change lives and so far, it is doing that. He believes in our ability to change our lives for the better and in our obligation, as he puts it, to positively impact and change the lives of others. For Kyle, he wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for all the people who both believed in him overcoming his adversity and acted on that belief to help him along the way.

Along with publishing, Kyle runs his own business, Soul Gazing Photography. His job is to help business owners to visually communicate who they are, what they do and how they help their ideal audience with the services and products that they provide. However this is not where his creative understanding originated from. It was in his grandparents home where he discovered the vision of ‘Soul Gazing Photography’.
Up until that moment, Kyle thought photography was all about grabbing the moment, now he had discovered that what it is really about is the moment grabbing you and you being ready to meet it. To extract from it what potential you see present.
Kyle is not interested in the version that we show to the entire world. The pretence, the facade, the calculated conveying of our self to ‘fit’ the environment. He is interested in meeting the true, authentic individual that we don’t let anyone else see, our core essence. There, in that moment of pure benevolence, in truth and connection to our divine, that’s where humanity has a chance. Kyle, with the camera, describes himself as being a conduit, a facilitator of the moment, a moment he believes we all need to see.
A pivotal moment that Kyle recounts is a time where he found himself on the edge of his bed at a crossroad. He had returned from Sydney where he witnessed his grandfather's final moments on this earth. With Clivey gone, Kyle was looking for more direction and a greater purpose in his life. Kyle had a very unconventional upbringing, he was raised by his step-grandparents. They had a significant part to play as his parents and role models.
It was during that moment of deep soul searching and fed up desperation that sparked a memory which allowed him to set voyage onto his next journey. A memory that brought ‘Decide Your Destiny’ into his life and into the lives of others. The sun gushed in from the windows, kissing the side of Clivey’s face, which had on it, a big boyish grin. Clivey and I weren’t speaking about anything in particular when he turned to me and spoke the words... ‘Decide Your Destiny’. I replied with a standard 18 year old boy’s response, “What”? “Decide Your Destiny”, he repeated. “What are you saying Clivey?”. “Kyle, make sure whatever you do in your life, that you decide your destiny.”

We extract the essence of Memento Mori (remember you will die) to bring a sense of importance to this heartbeat and what you do with it. We can't serve those we love and care for most if we are shackled by this fear however we can live and serve better if we know how to use the essence of this lesson. Our families, our friends, our communities are asking from us to go out and become our best selves. Memento Mori assists in that so we can live from our heart and soul and not all in our head.
We share insights of Epictetus teaching. The importance of distinguishing all that is in our power and is not in our power. As we uncover with clarity the where and why of our efforts we can elevate the energy we expend into those efforts. This will provide us with better results from our investments.
