Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2, verses 47-48:

Aum

kar-ma-ne-eva-di-ka-ras-te

maa pal-eshu kadaa-cha-na

maa kar-ma-pala-hey-tur-bhur

maa te san-go ‘stwa-kar-ma-ni

yoga-sthah ku-ru kar-ma-ni

san-gam tyak-tsva danam-jaya

sid-dya-sid-yoh samo bhu-tva

sa-ma-tvam yoga uch-ya-te

Aum

Your sphere of influence is with your actions alone

But never in the fruits or results of your actions

Don’t let your motive to act be because of the fruits or results of your actions

But at the same time don’t become selfishly attached to inaction or laziness

When practicing yoga, perform your actions

Having abandoned attachment to worldly desires and wishes

And become equally content with success or failure

Yoga is said to be that state of equanimity or even-mindedness
