    "A consuming passion is the last thing you think about before you go to bed at night and
    the first thing you think about when you wake up," says Brian Schwartz, author of the
    award-winning 50 Interviews series. "It feels like an addiction, and if someone told you
    to stop, it would be impossible for you to give it up.
" Schwartz explains that those who
    have been lucky enough to recognize and pursue their passion(s) don't really care if
    they are 
getting paid to do it or not. It's a part of their purpose, their calling in life,
    and without it, something is missing.
