Tanya: The praise and blessing (p. 381) ...granted forthwith. (p. 383).

No matter how much effort is exerted, no-one can earn one cent more than G‑d has ordained that he - this particular person - shall earn. One must do what is necessary, but one must remember that all his work is but an adjunct. The main thing is G‑d's blessing, and that blessing is earned by being observant of G‑d's commands: Davening with a minyan, observing Shabbat b'hidur (beyond the minimum, with "beauty"), meticulous observance of kashrut, having children instructed by sincerely religious teachers.1
