I retired in 2002 so I missed most of the dot-com problem, but, did experience the supposed 10 year period of no growth. I have had no earned income since then. My portfolio is higher than it was in 2002 even though I have taken some withdrawals from it. There is no secret here just things like a diversified portfolio, reducing risk, watch budgets and spending, etc.
