I think there are two reasons you might want to do a job: money or calling.
That is, you either want the job because you feel it’s what you should do with your life, like it’s going to make the world a slightly better place, and it’s less like you have to do it and more like you should be doing it.
Then, you might want to do a job because you want the money. It could be that you need the money to survive or you want more money to improve your life or to be able to do more.
And those two are not mutually exclusive. And they are both ok.
