Meditation has the power of making us drift into a more realistic world. When your mind is at ease, it is easier to understand who you are and the world around you. You then realize that the physical world can be somewhat of an illusion. Nevertheless, aspirations & dreams are important. There is nothing wrong with dreaming of having a successful career, an expensive car or travelling around the world. As long as chasing these dreams do not cause imbalance in other areas of your life or lead you to believe that you will be complete once you reach your goal; only then is the pursuit worthwhile!
