At maturity, there's likely to be a réévaluation of the satisfactions obtained with the material freedom and power that has been achieved. This mid-life appraisal is apt to focus on whether the current vocation (or the position in the current vocation) meets the individual's needs for money, power and status.
For some individuals, maturity may involve a new relation to the material world because of the growth of children, divorce, separation or new feelings about themselves and their earning power. Previous material satisfactions may no longer be available because of a decreased income, or, additional material satisfactions may become available due to their own business acumen.
At this time in the life, the individual is likely to revise at least some attitudes and actions in regard to material freedom in order to achieve deeper satisfaction along with a better control of the life.
