'Time and tide wait for none'.I was reading this story about a man who left everything to God and waited for lady luck to smile on him. His village was threatened by a flood. All the villagers were leaving for safe grounds except this man. When the water level started rising, a jeep came to rescue him. The man refused saying that God will save him. As the water level rose further, he moved up to the second floor of his house when a boat came to rescue him. He refused again saying that he had faith in God and will be saved by Him. The water level kept rising and the man climbed on to the roof. This time a helicopter came to the rescue, but he refused again saying that God will save him. Finally he drowned. He was very angry and disappointed. On reaching God he asked Him as to why he was let down and not saved. At this, God replied that it was he who had sent the jeep, the boat and the helicopter.
The moral of the story is that it is for you to take chances and make proper use of every opportunity you get. You have to take decisions at the appropriate time and act towards furtherance of your goals. Remember the saying, 'time and tide wait for none'. It is you who stand to lose if you keep waiting and miss a chance.
