Sthita – steadfast
«He whose illumination is steady, who has constant bliss, and who has almost forgotten the phenomenal universe, is accepted as a man liberated in this very life» (Vivekachudamani, 428).
According to Vyakarana, the school of analysis of Sanskrit grammar, sthita indicates a condition of mental stability, the condition of one who has removed all doubts and is therefore intact in his conviction. In general sthita is translated as “firmly convinced”, “persuaded”, “resolute”.

This does not mean being rigid in the face of criticism, but putting full energy into projects without lingering too much in doubt. On the other hand it is likely that the criticisms you will receive will be constructive and will not make you feel offended, but rather they will be a stimulus to do even better.
