What Happens to Us when We Think Success and Money are All We ought to go for?

What happens to us when we think success and money are all we ought to go for?  What happens to us?  Well, we find that there's nothing there when we get there.  There's nothing there.  There is no real security in that kind of security.  There is no comfort in that comfort.  It's paranoia.  It's more fear and it's a huge disappointment.  Second home, second boat.  Third boat.  Private jet.  More clothes.  More shoes, more shoes.
