Our Legend

“Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her; but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.”     -Voltaire

The Legend of the Raven in the Suit

Once upon a time in the bustling heart of Wall Street, where skyscrapers touched the sky and fortunes were made and lost in the blink of an eye, there was a legend that spoke of a mystical creature – a raven. This was no ordinary raven; it was a symbol of knowledge and wisdom, revered by ancient cultures for its intelligence and insight.

This raven, unlike its wild counterparts, donned a sleek, black business suit. Its feathers were as dark as the night, and its eyes gleamed with the sharpness of someone who could see through the chaos of the financial world. The suit it wore was tailored to perfection, a testament to its place among the high-flyers of investment banking, private equity, and venture capital.

The raven's story began in a humble nest, far from the glittering lights of the city. From a young age, it was fascinated by the ways of the world, absorbing knowledge like a sponge. It studied the patterns of nature, the cycles of the seasons, and the secrets of survival. But it yearned for more – it sought the wisdom hidden in the complexities of human ambition and the intricacies of high finance.

One fateful day, the raven encountered an old sage, a guardian of ancient wisdom. Recognizing the raven's thirst for knowledge, the sage bestowed upon it the gift of understanding human endeavors. As a mark of its new quest, the raven was given a business suit, symbolizing its journey into the world of high finance. This transformation was more than just physical; it was a melding of ancient wisdom with modern ambition.

In its new attire, the raven flew to the heart of Wall Street. There, it became a silent observer and a keen learner. It watched as traders and financiers made decisions that echoed through the global economy. The raven, with its profound wisdom, saw patterns where others saw only numbers, and it understood the delicate balance of risk and reward.

Like in any card game, the dealer gives a certain number of cards to each player. Once the cards are in their hand, they cannot give them back to the dealer, ask for another hand, or switch their cards with someone else. They have to play with the cards they were given. Quitting would render the whole game pointless. Whether their hand is good or bad, they must play their cards to the best of their ability.

However, they can’t play in any random fashion; there are rules they have to follow. These rules ensure that no one has an advantage over another player. If these rules are broken, a player will be penalized, thus jeopardizing their chances of winning. Players must live or die with the hand that was dealt to them. They have to do their best with the cards they were given.

Life is a lot like a game of cards. We all are dealt a hand and, whether good or bad, we have to play that hand according to the rules of the game of life. We live or die with the hand we were dealt. We do our best with the hand we were given. No matter how unfair we think our hand is, we can’t trade it in. There is no option to give our hand back to the dealer in hopes of getting a better hand. Whatever hand we were dealt is the hand we must play.

However, as in most card games, every player has a chance to pluck new cards, adding them to their hand. If you get enough plucks, you can even replace your original hand. The only scary thing is you never know which card you will pluck. Some will strike big and pluck a great card, giving them a better chance at winning. Some may pick a card similar to the one they already have, leaving them in the same position as before. Others will have the unfortunate luck of plucking a card that sets them back. Even a great pluck can be wasted if the card isn’t played correctly.

In life, we all are given opportunities, big and small. Sometimes these opportunities hit us like a ton of bricks, and we would be foolish not to take them. But sometimes they are more subtle. Regardless, we all are given opportunities in life. Yet, these opportunities are worthless if we squander them. If you get an opportunity, don’t let it go to waste. Take full advantage of it, no matter how big or small. Don’t let any opportunity pass you by, even if it’s nothing more than a networking event. You might not meet your future business partner or the person who will elevate your career, but you may meet someone who knows someone who can.

Winning in this game of life has little to do with the cards you were dealt and more to do with how you play them. Just because you were born poor doesn’t mean you lose from birth; it just means you were dealt a bad hand. But eventually, you will get your turn to pluck, your chance at an opportunity. Don’t let your pluck go to waste. Pluck your card and make the most of it. The game has begun. The cards are in your hand. How will you play them to win?
