Money is not the correct answer. As successful wealthy people know, money is easily created (and readily available for many).
- In 2014, the Federal Reserve printed over $500MM per day (treasury.gov)
- Corporations had trillions of dollars (that’s 13 figures $x,000,000,000,000) sitting around (Bloomberg)
- Swiss banks had $750 billion and they didn’t know what to do with (WSJ)
As you can see, there is plenty of money to go around.
Money is a consequence
There is a universal truth to creating more wealth for yourself, and you can start right now and before I tell you…
A follow-up question to “what makes a nation prosper” (we’ll answer that in a moment) is “how is technology/how are the worlds greatest innovators and businesses improving life?”
Think about which companies are improving our lives by:
- Making communication faster
- Making travel easier
- Making shopping more efficient
- Making life more exciting through entertainment
- Making manual labor less intensive
- Making the planet a cleaner place

We all know the popular sayings in popular success books and advice articles:
- “Give more than you get”
- “Render more service than you are paid for”
- “Go the extra mile”
These are all fun, motivational ways of saying “be more productive, have more output.” There is a reason why these popular sayings are often labeled as “laws of success.”
If nations are wealthy according to productivity and output, then individuals and groups can become more prosperous by contributing.
Doing more of your job than you are expected gives you a great reason to ask for a raise in the future.
Even if you are an artist, putting out more paintings, writing more articles, or producing more songs and movies means you are more productive and have more output for work you can sell. This does not mean to sacrifice quality. Practice improves quality – even though art is mostly subjective anyway.
Find a way to create more output from your business by increasing sales, improving marketing campaigns, or resolving operational issues, and it will grow.
