Many things have opposite properties. The water you drink can also drown you. Pork may nourish you and keep you alive, but under-cook it and it could kill you. Potassium nitrate is often used as a fertilizer to grow the food that sustains us, but it's also been used as an explosive to topple buildings and destroy us.
This concept is easily associated with "yin yang" where an element has two opposite properties that are as different as night and day.
This proverb's meaning can be summed up this way: "Anything that can lead you to success may also contain great risks."
