To add, try to pick a raise percentage that is within reason. To do that, look at sites like Glassdoor and see what other people are making in your city and in your field.

Another thing to also remember is that inflation is usually between 2-3% so asking for something in that range is pretty reasonable and the upper bound before bosses start to get nervous is >10% in my experience. It's not impossible to get more than 10% but you have to have to make a strong argument.
