As for THE SECRET to life itself - here it is, quite literally(!):
You MUST put something IN to get something OUT.
That's the truth of the matter.
When humans reproduce (meaning making children), quite literally we put something IN which results in us getting something OUT.
This example spreads and dominates every area and aspect of our lives - a fisherman must put in hard work, must put in graft, sweat, knowledge, expertise, time to get OUT fish (obv lol), satisfaction, his earnings/wage/profit/wealth.
The more you go IN, the more you put IN, the more you get OUT.
That's how it works.
Imagine this scenario: two minimum wage cleaners work for YOU, the first cleaner decides that he NEEDS a pay rise (he has a wife and kids to provide for) therefor he steps it up a gear at work: he becomes more punctual, puts in a real effort to go above and beyond what is expected of him as a cleaner: he works hard and produces results that he proud of... and you notice this....
The second cleaner also decides that he NEEDS a pay rise (he also has a wife and children to provide for). However his general attitude to the job isn't the greatest.. from your observation he seems to just be there because he has to be... he does what is asked of him but with minimal effort or enthusiasm, pride or apparent care and to be honest he's barely passing the minimum required standard.. I mean you see and feel him hardly to be striving.
Which one would you give the pay rise? Which one is more deserving?
Hard work and effort is ALWAYS required to be successful, you must strive.
How you going to make a baby, produce life, without putting in that nice feeling effort?
In today's world: test tubes. Some might answer that. How you going to get a test tube without somebody putting IN the effort and expertise and materials to produce the tube and then you putting IN a little bit of less "nice feeling" effort?
You've got to put in the hard work first! Success is the REWARD.
So there you have it folks! You now know THE SECRET TO LIFE itself.
You now know you need to put something in to get something out - and that something you get out will be directly proportional to that which you put in.
GO IN MY FELLOW WARRIORS! Hear this and then GO IN!!!
