Every challenge we face would be new, so think and act anew!An optimist is always hopeful of a better future in spite of the hurdles he faces in his life and never accepts how sad a place the world can be. But a pessimist realises this out anew every day. One must rise with the occasion without dwelling on the dogmas of the quiet past. Every challenge we face would be new, so we must think anew and act anew.
Take the war of Kurukshetra. The great warrior Arjun tried to run away from the war as he didn't want to fight with his own Guru , great grandfather and his cousins. He won many wars before that and brought fame to the Pandav clan. He pleaded with his chariot runner Lord Krishna that he can't fight the battle and not eager to emerge victorious by killing his own men. Krishna found a new man of innocence in Arjun while the latter understood the fact of the life when the Lord has taught him the Bhavadgita. This led Arjun to rejuvenate his valour and think anew to win the war against the Kaurav.
A challenge would always become an obstacle when it is not dealt in a different way. Here lies our ability to counter it with new concept derived on our own and face the challenge of the change that comes in our way. Life is not a bed of roses and we don't know what comes in our way and at what the time it would be. So we should be vigilant to act anew to move forward so that we don't bow for it!
