ABOUT MUCYO BALINDA
Is it possible for an individual or group of individuals to be highly talented, possess a lot of resources and still fail to live their life to the fullest?
I was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a country known the world over for its enormous wealth in natural resources: copper, gold, diamond, oil, columbium tantalite, young and capable workforce, just to name a few. Yet, during my early years I remember going to school with no school books, pens, and other school supplies that I needed for my education. I remember my colleagues walking more than two hours every morning to go to school because there were no schools near where they lived; I remember finishing elementary and high school without knowing what a school library looked like. Was all this because the country lacked the resources? was it because the country did not have skills? or was it because the country ran out of space? The answer to all these questions is no, no, and no.
After analyzing the situation I came to the realization that individuals as well as groups of individuals can be extremely talented, can possess enormous resources, but still fail to develop their full potential because they lack the will to change their situation; they fail to see what they are capable of doing and becoming; they lack a clear vision for their life; and they mismanage their resources (time, money, relationships, skills, environment...)
Every individual or group of individuals is endowed with unique abilities which can transform human conditions if those abilities are fully cultivated. However, under certain conditions and circumstances some of us fail to tap into the limitless possibilities that life makes available to all of us. Conditions such as lack of thinking, negativity, laziness, apathy, fear, and traumas can stifle our creativity and productivity causing us to fall short of our potential.
No matter how difficult our situation may be, we can face any challenge and succeed if we put our whole heart into whatever we do.
With a little bit of help and a good support system we can overcome any obstacles and bring down any walls that prevent us from living our life to the fullest.
WHAT I DO
I work with individuals or groups of individuals who for one reason or another feel like they are lost, stuck, confused, and do not know where they are going in their professional life. I provide them with tools helping them better understand their environment, prepare, and position themselves to embrace the future with confidence and determination to successfully compete in this high speed and fast changing work environment.
I obtained my baccalaureate degree in Human Services from Springfield college. I also obtained my ABA approved paralegal certificate from the University of San Diego. I have written two books, THE ROAD TO LIVING YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST published in 2008 and CEREBRATE, which was released on May 1, 2015.
