Simple

mukta-saṅgo ’nahaṁ-vādī
dhṛty-utsāha-samanvitaḥ
siddhy-asiddhyor nirvikāraḥ
kartā sāttvika ucyate

‘He is called Sātvika-Actor who is attachment-
free, boasts not of ‘I-ness,’ full of courage and zeal, unmoved by success or failure.’

Attachment-free = Exempt from attachment for fruit.

An-aham-vādi = who boasts not of self (=I-ness), as the agent, or who is devoid of the pride or love of self being agent (of an act).

Dhṛiti = Courage or fortitude, or the being able to bear up against all unavoidable sufferings incidental to the prosecution of a work undertaken.

Utsāha = Zeal, enthusiasm for effort, or the being enlivened with an active spirit for work.

And to be unmoved whether success or failure follow an action such as that of a war, or other acts such as earning money and other necessaries for prosecuting such a war. To be such an Actor is called Sātvika.
