"A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"

It means having something is better than a prospect of having more when faced with choices. It means, something you already have is twice as valuable to you as something you might be able to get. In other words, don't abandon something valuable you already have in the risky hopes of getting something better.

Example: If you're hunting turkeys, and one walks right up and lets you pick it up, don't drop it and run over to a bush because you hear 2 turkeys in the bush. Yes, 2 is better than 1, but you might end up losing all 3 turkeys. Value what you have more than what you think you can get.

Since you have already made a profit, and by running after more money you may loose it all.
