Studies have proven that attitude is one of the traits that separate average sales people from their highly-successful colleagues. I have to believe that it's true in life in general, not just sales. Think about the happiest, most successful people you know. How do you usually find them? Are they depressed, negative, or even apathetic? I doubt it. They're probably upbeat, smiling, and positive about life.
Why not take the same positive interested attitude you have toward your hobbies and transfer your passion to your ability to sell yourself, your ideas, or the end results of your hobby?
Instead of turning your selling job into a hobby, why not take the hobby you love so much and figure out how to market it or yourself? I'm not saying this change will make you a millionaire, but money isn't the only measure of success. If you could support yourself comfortably on the earnings from your hobby, I would deem you as having a successful life.Think about it! You already have the built-in enthusiasm, excitement, and knowledge of your hobby. Now all you need to do is show others why they need to feel the same way. If you do a little research, you'll find that many successful business people started out by selling their hobbies. Determine what you love to do, and then figure out a way to get paid for it. What could be better?
