In the English, /others/ is clearly not referring to the strength or the 
place within, so it obviously refers to other people. In your Klingon, 
on the other hand, it's not at all clear that *latlh* isn't referring to 
another heart or another origin.

*nIbe'HalmoH* also seems a poor substitute for /fail you./ Maybe *reH 
luj DuboQbogh nuv*/people who assist you will always fail./ Or maybe 
he's saying the strength of others will always fail you: *reH SoHvaD luj 
latlh HoS*/the strength of others will always fail for you./

I'd go with *tagha' nIteb SIQnIS Hoch nuv*/In the end, each person must 
endure alone/ or *tagha' nIteb SIQnIS nuv tlhIn*/In the end, an 
individual person must endure alone./

You've changed a /when/ to a /while/ for no reason I can see.

Just as the original ties the first sentence with the last, talking 
about what's within, you should do the same in Klingon. *boQ DapoQDI', 
tIqlIj yIbuS*/When you require assistance, focus on your heart/ (the 
place you said was the origin of the strength to endure).
