What we have is given by our KARMA!

Standard

Material success and failure go together like day and night.  Therefore you should understand than whenever there is success it will soon be followed by failure and that whenever there is failure it will soon be followed by success. If you allow yourself to be elated by success, you are sure to become depressed by failure.  The simple solution is to be equipoised, equal both in success and failure seeing them both as the mercy of Krishna and both to be engaged in His service.   Krishna describes such an equipoised vision as follows in the Bhagavad-gita: 

na prahṛṣyet priyaḿ prāpya
nodvijet prāpya cāpriyam
sthira-buddhir asammūḍho
brahmavid brahmaṇi sthitaḥ

bāhya-sparśeṣv asaktātmā
vindaty ātmani yat sukham
sa brahmayoga-yuktātmā
sukham akṣayam aśnute

“A person who neither rejoices upon achieving something pleasant nor laments upon obtaining something unpleasant, who is self-intelligent, who is unbewildered, and who knows the science of God, is already situated in transcendence. Such a liberated person is not attracted to material sense pleasure but is always in trance, enjoying the pleasure within. In this way the self-realized person enjoys unlimited happiness, for he concentrates on the Supreme.”
Bhagavad-gita 5:20-21
