Bhagavad Gita: Chapter II - Verse - 48

Stand in yoga and do your work
Yogasthah Kuru Karmani Sangam Tyakthwa Dhananjaya
Sidhya Siddhyo Samo Bhuthwa Samathwam Yoga Uchyate
Standing steadily in yoga, with your individual consciousness connected with the consciousness in every moment oh Arjuna, do your duties without attaching yourself to the results of your actions. The result can be currently favourable or unfavourable. If you get either excited by the benefits or put off by the disconcerting results, the disturbed mind will affect the action happening in the present moment.
Accepting victory and defeat on an equal plane, forge ahead as this equanimity of mind is only called yoga, says Sri Krishna to Arjuna. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
