aces vs 82 off-suit : part 2 (whatever that means)

cakap-cakap ilman aiman

normally, i would've given a good lengthy explanation of the first bit but i'm having a bit of a difficulty to expand on the technicality of the issue that he proposed earlier on. clearly i don't speak same the language here as my card playing skill is very limited or maybe non existence if u want to look it from a professional point of view. truth be told, i just couldn't figure out the anology that he was trying to come up with... i just couldn't. and now, i feel like there's a bit of an itch on my forehead with a big capital L popping out, visible for everybody to see. owhh f*** it.. ade aku kesah!!! picking up where he left off, as my colleague cleverly put it together that life is about probability. u win some & u lose some but u can't have it all. and to those who wins, the successful bunch that is, we may be tempted to envy them, making believe that despite having the same amount of hard work laboured in, they may have just been lucky. and of course deep down we know that their success is well deserved & perhaps has nothing to do with luck to begin with. it can be a hard thing to swallow, especially if ur one of the sour grapes type of people who swears on everybody elses successs except for ur own...

but the point that i'm trying to high light here is that fortune sides with those who dares. and if u put in a different way, it literally means that good fortune doesn't come to us, we go to it by breaking free & taking risks. because, in this life as i see it, it is all about taking chances. what seperates the acheivers than the ordinary folks is their willingness to take optional as well as necessary risks. just an example, in a nutshell, lets assume that i have an ok job. a job that is decent enough to support my expanses, my family and still have a little bit of that extra ringgit to cash in to the saving accounts. i'm may not be rich, but i'm comfortable enough. and one fine day, i received a new job offer from a new company that i'm not fairly accustomed to. the job comes with more responsibilities & a significant increase salary wise. and of course, in circumstances like this, u can't help but to wonder the endless possibilties that could've happen if u decide to accept the offer. and somewhere along the line such thoughts races thru ur mind. what shall i do? if i join the new company, will i get along with my superior and my coworkers? what if the working atmosphere is not to my liking? what if it they think that i don't meassured up? will i get fired?

often enough, when we're comfortable with a particular environment, we tend to be reluctant to break free from it. we want to feel secured. but bear in mind that those who refuse to take risks to protect their security are prisoners of their own mind, caged by their fears & trapped by their reluctance. turtle can't advanced without sticking their neck out.. neither could we. we hate changes, we dislike breaking our routine. we detest tring something new because anything that we're not used to doing is uncomfortable. but if we're always doing the same thing that how can we grow? the person who grows are the one who take risks while those who risk nothing is the one who does nothing, has nothing and is nothing....


p.s: sorry for the lengthy entry but i'm just in the mood to write. so i write & write...
