"Fortune favours the bold" nghĩa là gì?

"Fortune favours the bold" có từ fortune là vận may và the bold ý chỉ những người liều lĩnh, gan dạ. Cụm từ này có nghĩa là những người dũng cảm theo đuổi những gì mình mong muốn thì thành công hơn những người luôn cẩn trọng, dè dặt. Thành ngữ tiếng Việt tương đương là "có gan làm giàu".

Ví dụ
I know you're nervous about asking for a raise (tăng lương), but keep in mind that fortune favors the bold—you'll never get anything if you don't ask for it.

But look at what the Nuggets have done the past two seasons: Draft Michael Porter Jr., a potential No. 1 pick who fell to No. 14 because of injury concerns, and trade to get Bol Bol at No. 44 — a player considered a top-five pick going into the season. The Nuggets' front office broke from the herd mentality (tâm lý bầy đàn). Both were risky, bold picks. But fortune favors the bold.

But I only get so much time each week, so I can't address everything I'd like to. There are certain stories I'm dying to tell, but my staff tells me things like, "That's too weird," or "That makes no sense" — or even, "If you do that, you'll get sued (bị kiện)." But fortune favors the bold. I will fight for these episodes until they see the light of day (ra mắt, phát sóng).
