10 Assets That Are Hard to Attain, But Easy to Lose – Do You Possess Them?

Building something worthwhile takes dedication and patience, but it can be destroyed in the blink of an eye.

A user took it to the forum, and asked “What is very hard to get and very easy to lose?”. Here are the top responses.

“Takes me a month to start being consistent in eating healthy, working out and just taking care of myself but God, does it take just one day to fall off the bandwagon.”, said one user.

“As Warren Buffett said – ‘It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently’.”, said one user.

TRUST

“I got diagnosed autistic last year. I didn’t really tell people, not because I’m embarrassed but because there’s so many misconceptions that I wanted to sort out my own feelings before dealing with everyone else’s.

I did tell my sister, who told my mom, who told everyone. I don’t confide in anyone anymore. Once trust is broken, it’s extremely difficult to completely repair.”, said one user. 

MONEY

“If you’re rich then you can make a very good return even on safe investments, your wealth starts attracting more wealth. But if you’re poor then everything you can’t afford to spend money on becomes a bigger bill later on, or you’re forced to get onto payment plans that are designed to eat up every penny from your wallet.

That routine dentist appointment you can’t afford when you’ve got a mild toothache becomes an expensive surgery later on when your tooth rots, that kind of thing.”, said one user.

Particularly when compared to how long it takes to develop an impressive physique.”, said one user.

“I had a neighbor win £1m and lost it in less than a year because she didn’t think things through e.g. renting a store space rather than buying and then always closing early, buying a house in which she couldn’t afford the mortgage and so on. I wonder how she’s doing now.”, said one user.

SELF-ESTEEM

SOBRIETY

“For those out there that think it’s been long enough and you could probably do it responsibly now, just don’t! There was a brave post on ‘stop drinking’ this year where they tried exactly that, and it was worse than before.

We just gotta accept that we are eternally going to live with that ‘what if?’ is way better than the alternative.”, said one user.
