When professional excellence is associated with God awareness(yoga), the combination is invincible, the state of blessedness, beyond fear,worry, anxiety, tension and stress

यत्र योगेश्वर: कृष्णो यत्र पार्थो धनुर्धर: |
तत्र श्रीर्विजयो भूतिध्रुवा नीतिर्मतिर्मम || 78||
10c3efyatra yogeśhvaraḥ kṛiṣhṇo yatra pārtho dhanur-dharaḥ
tatra śhrīr vijayo bhūtir dhruvā nītir matir mama

The Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 78

Explanatory Notes:

This is the last verse of the last chapter of the Bhagavad Gita. This is not the statement of Lord Krishna or Arjuna, but the final and ultimate observation of Sanjaya. The general meaning is, where ever there is a combined association of the Lord of Yoga, Sri Krishna, and the wielder of the bow, Arjuna, there has to be prosperity and good fortune, victory and glory, growth, confidence, and steady policy. Sanjaya declares that this is his considered and firm opinion. The significant inner meaning has an all-time message for the human race. In modern times, forced duties, worry, anxiety, tension, fear, confusion, and psychosomatic diseases rule. This message is like a panacea, sure prevention and cure for all this suffering. Lord Krishna stands for the immortal Inner Self, God or Ista Deva or Paramaatmaa or The Divine. Arjuna stands for the individual self, the person with professional excellence. When professional excellence is associated with God-awareness (yoga), the combination is invincible, the state of blessedness, beyond fear, worry, anxiety, tension, and stress.

May God and the Great Masters, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you.
