When there is a difficult situation, should I simply accept it or fight it out?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Fight it out, if you feel.
If you feel you have done your 100% and you can’t fight it in any way, then pray. Pray for help!
First you accept the situation as it is and then fight it out. And after fighting, again accept. A fight should be sandwiched between acceptance and that is the essence of Yoga.
Yoga means what? Acting with acceptance and with serenity; acting with the total vision.
