Do not be so concerned about what might come upon you from the outside – difficulties or advantages, losses or gains. Just work, knowing that every possibility is within you.
As a result, you will become stronger, and increasingly capable of facing whatever situation arises.
You must never rely on any outward gain or success in any field, for nothing external lasts forever, nor can it ever truly belong to you. Sooner or later, it will slip from your grasp.
You must simply work to become strong and rich inwardly – in your heart, mind, soul and spirit, so that everything you acquire will be yours forever. In this lies true freedom, true independence.
