A career opportunity that you thought you had missed out on could be offered to you again. Too late, you think. You have committed yourself to other things since then, but those contracts or agreements also seem to be under review—and they no longer hold on to you as tightly as they did. It is almost as if you are being set free deliberately, to take the chance you missed. Don’t let it go a second time.
