Hobby vs Profession

There was a story on Warren Buffet. In his childhood he used to study annual report of various companies during his vacation. That was not intended to become biggest investor. Rather it was derived from his own deep interest to understand financial of a company. We call it a hobby. Fortunately Buffet’s hobby become instrumental to his success as there was no difference between his hobby and profession.
All of us have some or other interests. Only few of us posses their interests as their profession. Not surprisingly these people are more successful and satisfied in their life. When your interest become your profession, you put your passion to work along with your knowledge, skills and attitude. Moreover, when you work passionately your quality of experiences and learnings become higher. There are lot of examples in our surroundings. Most of the known sportsmen, actors, artist, musicians have followed their hobby passionately to make that their successful profession. There could be unknown people from the same category struggling to leave a mark but I am sure they must be at least satisfying their inner voice.
I am from the other category of people who’s profession and hobby are not same. However; I can derive one conclusion from the above to answer the biggest question of how to get exceptionally successfull career.
In life sometimes undoing things is not easy. For people like me, at 30, if its not late then at least not viable to pursue new career in the area of biggest hobby or interest. However; converting my profession into my biggest interests or hobby is the easiest option. Option is easy, but execution is not. Converting your profession into your hobby will require an honest effort from your inner self. There is no formula of quick conversion but an honest approach will change your professional outlook and success.
