Once upon a time, there was a simple chemical.
Then some lightening, or an act of God turned this simple chemical into a life form.
This life form had one objective – make copies of itself.
In order to do that, it had to extract resources from its environment.
Of course, it wasn’t the only basic life form. There were plenty of others like it.
All competing for those resources.
Pretty soon these simple life forms got more and more complicated. They slowly changed over time.
Flash forward a couple million years.
Deep inside of everybody is that same drive. To acquire resources in order to make copies of oneself.
How do we get resources?
We interact with our environment. But instead of just eating stuff, we create stuff.
Because our environment is other people like us.
That means developing relationships, creating win-win exchanges, and building even more wealth.
Therein lies the self-sustaining miracle of human life.
Humans make more humans.
Wealth makes more wealth.
The more you get, the more you get.
