Lot's failure began when he felt self-sufficient and decided to turn away from his uncle Abraham, to go live with the pagan sodomites, enemies of God, there he lost everything that the Lord had given him.

Lot failure by a spirit of selfishness, let go by greed to see the Jordan plain without caring that the people of Sodom were evil and sinners greatly only saw the opportunity to take advantage of Abraham.

Lot failure because I only look for material benefits believed that he made a good business by putting his stores to Sodom.

Lot thought to live in Sodom without being contaminated, how often this story is repeated among the believers.

Beloved, we must ask ourselves: What did Lot gain by separating from Abraham?

The death of his wife
The sin of their daughters
-He lost everything material and only saved his life.

Many Christians lament the loss of their family and their property, but as Lot they continue to move their stores to Sodom seeking new horizons without thinking of their spiritual well-being. They move away from God and then die spiritually. Brother, everything that makes us turn away from the study of the word of the Eternal, of prayer, of the activities of the congregation, although it promises us more material wealth, will lead us to spiritual ruin and in the end we will not have anything good.

I pray the blessed one to help you come to him and attract you after his son

Good teaching Brother, to follow the current of the worldly system that reigns in the world, is to go against the perfect path that Jesus Christ established.

We don't know what Lot was thinking but you're right that Lot left Sodom with nothing. The Bible still says he's a righteous man:

(2 Peter 2:6-8 NIV) if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; {7} and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men {8} (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
