“Each soul is Queen in her own state. So let us no longer seek excuses from the external qualities of anything: the responsibility lies within ourselves. Our good or our bad depends on us alone. So let us make our offertories and our vows to ourselves not to Fortune: she has not power over our behavior; on the contrary our souls drag Fortune in their train and mould her to their own idea.”

Your only concern should be on the NEXT STEP and how well you are taking it. Do that consistently. Nothing else matters. In a billion years the Andromeda galaxy will crash into ours and destroy all traces of our species. Be the best of yourself NOW.
Power comes from a focus on the work at hand.
