Because human life is eternal.
All people naturally desire for greater, higher, longer existence. Beauty, glory, nobility… are of powerful attraction to all hearts.
Little kids may see attraction in their parents, teachers and other prominent people. And adults want to be wise and virtuous kings, or at least to be respected as the most esteemed personality.
In reality, all human beings are created by God in the image and likeness of God. Holy Books are explaining the supreme station of man among all His creatures. Hence, this desire for life eternal is a divine aspiration.
Physical possessions will be lost, but the immortal souls will enjoy reunion with God beyond all time and space.
All people will understand this truth and will make greatest effort for achievement. God ordains all things and His decree is irrevocable.

Abdul-Baha says:

That divine world is manifestly a world of lights; therefore man has need of illumination here. That is a world of love; the love of God is essential. It is a world of perfections; virtues or perfections must be acquired. That world is vivified by the breaths of the Holy Spirit; in this world we must seek them. That is the Kingdom of life everlasting; it must be attained during this vanishing existence.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Foundations of World Unity, p. 63)
