Many times it happens. We may spoil our chances many times by reacting in a different way. All depends on our thought process at that moment of time. Some people can't budge to other people even though it may be good for their progress. Thay may be having some of their own principles and they may not like to go against those principles, I know some people who just left their jobs as they are getting forced to do some unwanted acts which are not good as per their principle and they choose to leave those positions. All depends on your mindset and priorities.
