If I were to ask you what the difference between passion and profession was, the list would be endless for most of you. But what most of us fail to realize is that passion and profession go hand in hand; they are like two sides to a coin, and without one the other cannot exist.
After all, most of us are quite comfortable with pursuing our passion as a hobby or leisure-time activity. Very few of us would consider making a profession out of our passion. But this thinking needs to change. After all, what’s the use of pursuing a profession without a passion for it, and why not make your passions your profession? Is it that hard to digest? Well, the answer is yes.
For years, professions have been associated with either a job or a serious career path and of course, one that is financially promising and stable. When we think of a profession, the first image that pops into our minds is busy people dressed in suits working at a desk in a formal office setting. Little do we picture a writer working in his bedroom with scrunched-up papers lying on the floor, a photographer creeping behind a parrot for that perfect shot, or a painter conjuring a portrait of a pretty woman. Our minds are so muddled up with stereotypes that we cannot see beyond the ordinary. Perhaps, the same reason is why we fail to establish the connection between passion and profession at first sight.
