Can you honestly say that you would stay?
Also, working for the boss who could only pay you $70,000 meant you had a better chance at achieving the ultimate goal in your field. Or how about this: Steve Jobs offers you 70k to help create the iPod and Bill Gates offers you 100K to help create the Zune.
