Danny Gokey: Tell your Heart to Beat Again

I was well seated in front of my 15 inches Laptop Screen watching the video as he was invited in front of a “not-too-big” audience to perform a hit song he released on his album “HOPE IN FRONT OF ME”. The title, “Tell your Heart to beat again”, alone stirred my interest to download the video from Youtube, and it was worth the megabyte spent.

He stood amid the standing ovation, elegantly dressed as musical guru; well composed. He grabbed the microphone as the instrumentals keep modulating the pitch of the music. The melody oozed with a heavenly appeal. I was captivated by this sound when he let out the first line, “You're shattered like you've never been before”. With a keen interest, I listened while he continued “The life you knew in a thousand pieces on the floor, and words fall short in times like these when this world drives you to your knees. You think you're never gonna get back to the you that used to be”. It was then I knew this wasn’t just a song but God speaking to my soul.

I was still meditating on those aforementioned line as the chorus came rushing, “Tell your heart to beat again.... Close your eyes and breathe it in….. Let the shadows fall away, step into the light of grace..... Yesterday's a closing door and you don't live there anymore... Say goodbye to where you've been and tell your heart to beat again….” Now, I am convinced as I whispered to my hearing, “I hear you Lord”.

He is Daniel Jay "Danny" Gokey. An American singer and former church music director from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


You see, the content of the song so deeply resonated with my condition that I had no doubt God was speaking to me and to whosoever cares to listen to this heavenly song. Yea, I have been there. There was a time in my life when the zeal was overflowing. When the glory was so aglow. I thought I could remind there forever, but a storm was awaiting my arrival in time. When the storm finally hit, I took solace in pitying myself even as I was spiritually dying. I thought I couldn’t get back to where I use to be. But I was so wrong.

So wrong of me to dwell on the bigness of my problem instead of seeking for peace on the bigness of my God. I should have been wiser, but thank God I am.

I know you have been there too. At a point you lost all focus and direction. Everything you’ve dreamt to be possible seems so impossible. My dear, you are not alone. But, you have to understand that trial and temptation are part of the instrument God uses to sharpen us into able workman, equipped with the necessary skills and quality to fulfill our purposes on Earth. You have to understand that “God is faithful; He will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which ye are able to bear, but with the temptation will also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”. I didn’t write the last words on quote, God did in 1 CORINTHIANS 10:13.
He is true to His words. So, let this be your confidence as you go through the huddle in your journey to fulfilling purpose. God bless.

I am Raphael Nweke, and I just want to make you better.

Third Class Graduate, yet an Excellent Leader



“Son, I made sure I married an intelligent woman just be assured that you have the brain to face complex academic challenges, as you’re leaving for school, don’t just come back with only first Class, come home a full man”, I will tell my son as he prepares to fly back to school. (For emphasis, research has shown that intelligence of a child is exclusively from the mother)


It is amazing to read that Tony Elumelu, a Nigerian economist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, the Chairman of Heirs Holdings, the United Bank for Africa, Transcorp and founder of The Tony Elumelu Foundation, recognized as one of "Africa's 20 Most Powerful People in 2012" by Forbes Magazine, actually graduated with Third Class. Are you serious?

I’m not kidding here….

Gani fawehinmi, a man whose one-off scholarship saved my academics back in 2012, also graduated 3rd class, yet to graduate with First Class as a Law student in Nigeria Universities, you need his law books. Wow, a paradox!

Wole Soyinka, a Nigerian playwright and poet, awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize in Literature, the first African to be honored in that category, also graduated with a third Class… What?  Someone must be joking somewhere!

A young lady, extremely brilliant, a girl I respect so much once ask for my advice on business related issue, in the course of my advice I made a comment, “Everything is not all about reading and sometimes you have to make out time for other things”. Behold, she flared up and that was how we lost communication, maybe permanently. Most probably, she erroneously thought I was encroaching into her excellent academic pursuit.

It is not surprising that most CEO of big firms and founders of big corporations are in these category of Third Class Graduate, yet they make decisions on how to hire the best first class candidate for each specialized Job. This factor has intrigued me for such a long time and I have read heavily on these issues. From my research, I discovered that there are skills which you need to develop if you really want to be a household name. These are abilities, you eagerly need to possess.

It is appalling that our education system is structured in such a way that you need to sacrifice the time which should be dedicated in acquiring this skill, on the first Class alter.

I am not in any way writing against pursuing academic excellence. One on core value is being excellent in any activities I find myself. But the essence of this writing is to let you know that there are certain things you must not sacrificed just because you want to be a First class material.

I was working on an article yesterday, as I asked myself a question, "what is the number one skill a fresh graduate need to possess for greater career success?". Well, the answer is communication skill, but the most amazing skill a person should strive to acquire is leadership skill.

Being an excellent leader which is impossible without developing your communication skill, can take you places a First Class Certificate can’t.

Someone may ask, “Is it possible to acquire this leadership cum communication skills and still fight for first class?” Well, on the premise that “all thing are possible to them that believe”, it is 100% possible. But if you have to choose between being a first class material with no leadership prowess or an excellent leadership candidate, choose the later.

This advice is not for everyone. God bless

My name is Raphael Nweke, and I just want to make you better.

A Worthy Advice: Beware of the Trojan Horses



“Equo ne credite, Teucri. Quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentes” wrote Virgil, Roman poet, best known for his national epic, the Aeneid, meaning “Do not trust the horse, Trojans. Whatever it is, I fear Greeks bearing gifts”

7 Ways to break a Bad Habit

We are being of habits. Any action you engage in for 7 times tends to be formed as a habit. Notwithstanding, there are good habits and bad habit. There are habits when formed help you to reach you goal faster and easier, and work seems to be a pleasure and not stressful task. But those habits that pose as a threat to your well-being, that give you momentary relief and very toxic on the long run must be dealt with.

If you find yourself in the web of bad habits that sticks so badly, these 7 ways can help you break away from it.

Desire to break it

It is one thing to know that a habit is toxic to your life and another thing to have a genuine desire to break the habit. You must desire to break this habit so badly as your desire water if you have been thirsty for a long time. Desire is the very first step in the quest to break a bad habit.

Determine to let it go

Well, the truth is, if you don't have enough determination to break this undesired habits it will stick around forever. You have to understand that for days, months or years you have consistently fed this habit to make it as strong as it is in your life, so you have to starve it by disengaging in it. The longer you do this, the weaker the desire to indulge in it.


Be Consistent in Your fight

In any case, and for no reason must you be discouraged to give in. Be consistent in this fight. Consistent engagement in such activities formed the habits, and you must recognize that the same process is needed to break it. You've got to be consistent if you really want to break from this.

Develop Faith your Ability to Win

It seems easier to live in fear, but you've got to have faith in your ability to overcome. Funny enough, fear is a negative version of fear. Faith and fear work with the same principle, but while fear is spontaneous, faith requires a conscious effort. Knowing that you can overcome will guarantee success at the end.

Take Necessary Action

Having faith is never enough. You have to take appropriate actions to effectively eradicate any undesired habit. For instance, if you are given to eating junk food which resulted to overweight, you don't just have a mental attitude of Faith. No! It must be adequately backed up with action for you to see a lasting result in that direction. You must take action in working out on a weekly or daily basis. You must take action in dealing with the type and content of food you eat on daily basis. Do not give in to temptation.

I repeat, Do not give in to temptation


Replace the Bad Habit with Good Ones

You have to understand that you cannot effectively recover from bad habit if the vacuum created by breaking it is not repeat by equivalent behavior. You must endeavor to find a positive behavior to replace that bad behavior. The new behavior must be one that channels you towards the achievement of your life prospect and vision.

Reward Yourself

Finally, you have constantly reward yourself each time you conquer the desire to indulge in the bad habit. There is something about reward which is important in this case, it give you a sense of well-being and that joy of conquest. Don't joke with this; it helps.

Meditate and practice this principle and see you life get better for good.
