Money as an incentive?

Financial security was quite a hot topic in class recently. One arguement consisted of whether or not to consider job satisfaction as the primary determinant for your career choice. The other arguement was to base your career choice on reputation and finance.
My thoughts on this idea are a little complicated. My view on this is that it is important to chose a career that can keep you motivated and challenge you in interesting ways. At the same time it is important to consider the financial aspect if you are looking for long term security for yourself (and family). But the point I dsagree with is to chose a career solely based on your interests while sacrificing financial secuirty. I beleive this would be a rash and somewhat irresponsible decision especially if you have family or friends that are dependent on you financially. I am not saying that one chose money over professional hapiness, but one must consider the consequences of not having some capital to invest in their life and well being. Contrary to the some beliefs of the "evils" of money, there are many benefits of living comfortably in terms of mental and physical well being. I believe the freedom and benefits of having a well paid job can make up for some of the dissatifaction endured during a career you are not completely enjoying.
