Environments are not bad but your mind is such. Your mind is not disciplined properly. Wage war with this horrible and terrible mind. Do not complain of unfavourable environments. Complain against your own mind first. Train it first.
If you practice concentration amidst unfavour¬able environments, you will grow strong, you will develop your will-force quickly, you will become a dynamic personality. See good in everything and transmute evil into good. This is real Yoga. This is the real work of a Yogi.
