You’re good or great at what you do. A decision has been made. It doesn’t go your way. You can stop around and complain, railing to the gods about their injustice. That’s certainly one option.

You can also walk into your boss’s office and ask one question.

“What did I miss?”

That one question invites information that you can learn from that will help you in your career far more than you can imagine today.

Sometimes, you learn about some data that you overlooked. Sometimes, you miss something about internal politics.

No matter, you’ve just grown.
