Its intent is to help people anticipate conflicts which life introduces when they seek to fulfil their dreams. It sheds light on the making of mid-life crisis and how to manage it. Set in Nigeria, it mirrors struggles between dreams, ambitions and destiny and the winning psyche. The tales will challenge you to discover and harness your endowments - the gifts for which you have passions. But they also disabuse people who carry on with life in despair. Unfortunately, a lot of people tend to interpret their condition based on some superstition. Doing so, they ignore the need or fail to reinvent themselves. Consequently, they fail to make a success of life. Getting to grips with forces that shape outcome of life - the way Ike did in the tales - is critical for success. Lifes issues are a decisive influence in the tale. On occasion life manifests its harsh realities - defying reason and unleashing ordeals on its victims. Helplessly mankind has had to live with an uncritical but rational mind that lifes phenomena encompass vicissitudes. Solving all of lifes questions is not beyond the realms of possibility. But finding appropriate responses to dictates of life intriguingly belongs in the spiritual realm - some would say. That way life continues to take a toll on its victims. From struggles to quit the rat race to manoeuvres to know what the future holds in store, life holds sway still. People who make a success story applaud life for its fairness, while the unfortunates bemoan that life is unfair to them. Yet everyone learns the lessons of life in the school of experience. The unpalatable truth is that human desires - usually seen in peoples lofty dreams and ambitions - and the realities of life are often diametrically opposed. This fact dawns when somebodys chickens come home to roost as is evident in Ikes experience.
