1.People do not live nowadays--they get about ten percent
out of life.
2. Look, if you wanna get anything out of life,you gotta put some spin on the ball,OK?
3.Let's get the best out of life.
4.Ask yourself: what do I want out of life?

Hello, the above sentences are quoted from a post. He is asking what "out of life" refers to.

Someone says it means life per se in Chinese. I don't understand why it is "out of" life instead of "from life" or "in our life"

Please advise.

Thank you.
