Joonho’s Answer

Well, that's life! People who have it all are gunned down or killed in car accident in the next day with no reason. We don't know what's going to happen in next year, next month, next day, next hour or even in next minute. We have to live and work hard to have a good life, though. However, just working hard is not the best way to have a good life. Rather working smart and/or working with perspective would be a better way. Your life is too short to be consumed by work, work and study and get stressed. Lost everything? But you are still alive! No matter what kind of valuable things you had before you lost, that could be insignificant things when you look back many years from now. If you are a hard worker - I believe you are, you can re-start from scratch. Keep in mind we are living on this Earth to enjoy life, not to have a stressful life. I know it's easier said than done, but at least try not to overwork. I am not a hard worker and never was, but I also couldn't enjoy my life, so this advice is for me too.

Malachi’s Answer

Life is full of ups and downs, from misplacing your cherished pen to experiencing the loss of your business. When you lose something, it's crucial to focus on what remains, which might be as simple as the clothes on your back and the contents of your pockets. Don't let a tough day define your entire life. When you hit rock bottom, the only direction you can go is up. Each step you take after losing everything is a testament to your determination and desire for success. Establish SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals for yourself. Having a goal that is attainable and beneficial will aid you in numerous ways.

Caitlyn’s Answer

Well, what other option is there, really?
- We sit and rot, (which sucks and lands us in poverty and illness)
- We pick something random and overwork ourselves into misery (which also sucks)
- We pick something we love, learn to master self-care, and make happiness our top priority - focus on the things and people that are fulfilling.

Yes, we risk loss, and there are so many things we can't control,,,, so instead of wasting energy trying to control everything, the best approach that will maximize success and health is to focus on the things that bring us satifaction and joy. To learn to do this, I highly recommend the book and workbook "Excuse Me! Your Life is Waitring!" by Lynn Grabhorn.
