About the book

“From a difficult, rural existence in Ghana to the promise of life in the United States, Living in Two Worlds shows how the necessities of life can be found in perseverance and faith. With inspiring and encouraging stories that chronicle his and his family’s journey, author Sadik Aboagye shares for posterity and for insight both the contrasts and comparisons of life on two sides of the globe.”

“The author offers an impressionistic view of rural life in Ghana with its concomitant challenges. With some of us, it is a reminder of the good old days in the village where basic amenities like good schooling, electricity, pipe-borne water, and clinics were virtually nonexistent—and yet where life was normal and joyful. It equally serves as a useful resource for all those who never tasted rural life but grew up in the cities of Africa and other countries. Though the author went through myriads of problems and challenges with school, finances, fatal accidents, diseases, frustrations, and perilous times on the seas aboard a ship from Nigeria to Ghana—as well as many other heartbreaking events in his life—God protected him and his family in their journey through life.

It is also an encouraging story of how maximization and utilization of available natural and human resources can propel the individual and society to greater heights. I am deeply honored to write these few lines about this timely, needed, and informative book.”

Excerpts

Success is to be measured not so much by the position one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.

Booker T. Washington

Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.

Albert  Einstein

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are the two surest stepping stones to success.
