Your question is simple enough but will provoke different thoughts. It must be so. The 'material' will see it one way and the 'spiritual' will see it another way. On a soccer pitch, the Goalkeeper will save goals, and the Striker will score goals. In an Orchestra, the flute will be the flute, and the piano will give of a different sound. So too with human beings.
Sages say that if we want the tree to blossom, then we need to water the roots. There is a Source to all things. Why do we want to succeed? Is it for name, fame, security? What prompts us to want these things? Are we lacking somehow? Does life feel empty and why is it so?
When the corn is properly harvested, the seeds are plentiful, the soil looks excellent, even the stalks look great. So I say that there need not be a separation from the material to the spiritual. They are essentially one. Remember, not the Soul for Nature, but Nature for the Soul. I hope this helps. Wishing you Love, Light and Innner abundance.
