Not all opportunities are equal, and not all equal opportunities are for everyone.
We all are different and have strong belief systems. While one might believe taking risks is important than settling with the slow growth, someone else belief could be that financial stability is more important, even at the cost of the growth rate.
Both the above scenarios are right in their own place and just one of the many cases to be considered.
When dealing with any opportunity, you should be really knowing what you are, what is your belief system, and what is important for you. Only if all the tables are ticked right, then only you should go ahead and embrace the opportunity. Or you can decide the other way too, but then you would know what you are getting into.
