If it's material wealth, then i disagree. I think material wealth is an essential part of being free to do whatever you want to do, and for me its a need.
But of course it is not all, it cant be all otherwise the person will end up unhappy. One has to know what he wants his greater purpose to be (either helping eradicate the hunger, helping in world peace, creating a new technology that will help humanity a lot, or whatever).
For me, my purpose will be far more achievable if i'm wealthy, so its one more reason i have to get rich.
I also believe getting rich can be an end goal, but after that you must have something bigger to achieve, or you will probably get unhappy.
Actually Sam I agree with you. The stuff (material wealth) was very important to me just recently. And it can be a huge motivator for many people. There are no judgements about what rings your bells, if stuff does it for you then actually you've got it easy. You'll find it very straightforward to simply focus on what you want and get it because you can define it.
You don't need a reason to be rich other than you want to. Here's to be you swimming in the cash...
