“ Perform all actions forsaking attachment to the fruits of actions, being indifferent to success and failure. Such mental equanimity is called Yoga ”

As the ignorant perform actions with attachment and hope of reward, so the wise should act with dispassionate nonattachment, to serve gladly as a guide for the multitudes.
A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions--as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.
There is talk of the failure of socialism, and where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia, and Latin America?
You should learn to think of one thing at a time with all the power of your mind. Your whole attention should be there. Doing things in a lackadaisical way leads to failure and misery.
It is truly impossible for an embodied being to abandon actions completely, but he who relinquishes the fruit of action is called a renunciant.
When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.
