For many professionals, career planning means getting their first (or next) promotion, in part as a way to increase their compensation. And so they ask for it, and it often doesn't go well.

The reasons for that are many. If your boss doesn't think you're ready, you directly asking for a promotion is presumptuous. If your boss doesn't think you even know what the criteria are - have you asked? - it's even worse. But really what it often all boils down to is a lack of understanding of the relationships between three key org systems: roles, responsibilities, and compensation.
