Have you ever felt like there is a dream you would like to make a reality, but the daily responsibilities of life consume all your energy and resources? Do you have a dream of making something happen that will make an impact in the world, but you do not know where to start?
Growing up in Kampala, Uganda, I had dreams of travelling the world, to serve humanity and make an impact in the world… In 2009 I came to the Netherlands. Arriving at the rude awakening that things were not as I thought.
I put myself into a situation I did not prepare for, I went through a procedure that lasted 2 years and ended with me being arrested and locked up in an immigration detention centre for 10 months, because of living illegally in the Netherlands. This experience caused me to stop looking for my answers on the outside but rather look within myself. I made a commitment to myself to be better rather than being bitter because of what happened.
I went to Uganda and later came back to the Netherlands the right way. I settled in, got a job, got married and become a Dutch citizen. The dream of serving people, and making an impact in the world stayed with me, but I did not know where to start.
So I read personal development books, attended seminars, enrolled in speaking training courses, wrote and published a book. With all of this, I felt like I was spinning in circles, I did not feel like I was serving people and making an impact in the world.
I invested in a coach this is what helped me get clear on what I needed to do to make my dream come true.
I knew I had a lot to give and I just didn’t know how to get there.

What people are saying about my book
Magdalena Smee (Australia)
An honest and brave account of one man’s persistence to pursue his dreams in the face of adversity. A compelling journey, Muyingo writes as if he is sitting opposite you opening up over a cup of coffee. His story is not only one of great personal strength, but also a powerful insight into immigration and the psychology of being an outsider. A remarkable tale of tenacity, full of trials and the occasional humorous faux pas that leaves the reader feeling inspired.
Femke Smits, MD (The Netherlands)
This is a story of an extraordinary journey undertaken by Kenneth Muyingo. Opening up takes you into the life of Kenneth and shows you how he found the strength that he needed to never give up and endure all challenges, struggles and mistakes he had to face in life. By sharing his story, Kenneth shows you how to take a challenge as an opportunity in the pursuit of happiness and fulfillment. I highly recommend this book to anyone, it will be an inspiration for many people. This book will guide you to discover your own strength that you need to become the best version of yourself by opening up and above all, to never give up. Thank you Kenneth for being so open with us by sharing your journey, your life. And thank you of being such a positive and caring friend to me, and many others.

Am sure many people will learn and still learning from your determination to accomplish what seemed to be impossible. Your courage and not giving up on your dream!!! A big THANK YOU!!! in capital letters."
Stephanie Makhlouf (South Africa)
A candid, everyman’s tale, Opening Up describes Kenneth Muyingo’s transition from a starry-eyed dreamer to a man who displays courage, conviction and integrity. The book reveals how commitment, perseverance and not taking no for an answer are part of the journey to live the life you truly want and become the person you were always meant to be. As a fellow African, I am inspired by Kenneth’s passion, positivity and drive to inspire others.
Faith Nakigudde (Uganda)
I have enjoyed reading your book, I like the way it starts, it relates to the Dreams that many African children have when they are young and the stories are Genuine and true. I like the fact that despite of the challenges that you faced, the ending is good and gives a message of hope. It is one that I would recommend every person who wishes to travel to read. Thank you Kenneth for sharing and allowing God to use your story to impact many people's lives. God bless you.
Kees-Jan Lagemaat (The Netherlands)
Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere. As Barack Obama speaks these words, Kenneth is living them. Kenneth's book and guidance help me live life to the full, despite setbacks and all. Thats an amazing experience. Highly recommended!
Kees Hoving (The Netherlands)
Kenneth opens up, describing (in detail) how he went through the Dutch immigration proces. In my view we see him enter it as a boy and emerge as a man; a man who killed his lions. He reflects upon the theme of the circumstances we can find ourselves in and our own responsibility in them. We can use that responsibility and the power of choice to change either ourselves or our situation. That is what Kenneth has done, and what we can learn from him. I love how he chose to confront his challenges by seeking God’s guidance and strength. A man is, after all, only as powerful as the convictions he fills his heart with.
