There was a young man named Tom who had been working at a company for five years. He had always wanted to start his own business and had saved up some money to invest in it. One day, he came across an opportunity to invest in a startup company that promised huge returns. Excited about the possibility of making a lot of money quickly, he decided to invest all of his savings in the company. At first, everything seemed to be going well, and the company was making a profit. Tom was thrilled and started dreaming of all the things he would do with his newfound wealth. However, things took a turn for the worse when the company went bankrupt and Tom lost all of his investment. He was devastated and realized that he should have been more cautious with his money. He learned the hard way that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. He realized that it was better to be satisfied with what he had. He decided to work hard to grow his wealth slowly, rather than taking big risks that could result in losing everything.
