initiative

प्रारभ्यते न खलु विघ्नभयेन नीचैः
प्रारभ्य विघ्ननिहता विरमन्ति मध्याः।
विघ्नैर्मुहुर्मुर्हुरपि प्रतिहन्यमानाः
प्रारब्धमुत्तमगुणाः न् परित्यजन्ति॥

भर्तृहरेः  नीतिशतकम्  धैर्यपद्धतिः
prārabhyate na khalu vighnabhayena nīcaiḥ
prārabhya vighnanihatā viramanti madhyāḥ|
vighnairmuhurmurhurapi pratihanyamānāḥ
prārabdhamuttamaguṇāḥ n parityajanti||

bhartṛhareḥ  nītiśatakam  dhairyapaddhatiḥ

praarabhyate na khalu vighnabhayena niichaiH
praarabhya vighnanihataa viramanti madhyaaH.
vighnairmuhurmurhurapi pratihanyamaanaaH
praarabdhamuttamaguNaaH n parityajanti..

Men who are by nature cowards  will never think of any new initiative because the fear of defeat, real or imaginary has taken deep roots in their psyche.
Another category of men are those who would give a try if the environs are propitious, but would silently backout at the sight of the slightest possibility of a setback.
But the really bold visionaries who are the salt of the earth, would start a project with meticulous planning and will bring it to victorious conclusion even if they face multiple roadblocks-many of them really tough-

(of course there is a difference between people who are assiduous and who are assinine... i can be crowned as the leader of the second group... against heavy odds.. the worst being eccentricity,  I am prodding on with these slokas for about a year now... but i have not  given up not because i am noble but I do not have anything worthy to do apart from this.)

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
