May's issue of Pathways to Success highlights two articles that focus on finding one's inner self. The first article is about the Japanese phrase "Ikigahi," which I learned about in my recent Quarterly Meeting in Pennsylvania. The second article is about the importance of Inner Awareness in our lives. How do you self-reflect to find greater meaning and purpose in your lives? How does that impact your success in your ventures?

Please to colleagues and friends if you found them valuable and encourage them to sign up to receive future newsletters by completing the information available on my website. Thanks for your continued support and interest!
