I'm not sure what you're looking for in an answer, but sometimes the path that we think we should take isn't right for us at the stage of life we are in. I am very passionate about defense and intelligence, and I've spent considerable time working with various thinktanks and taking classes in political science and international relations. But at this point in life, pursuing a career in that field didn't make sense for me. I majored in finance, which I was not very inspired by at all. That said, I worked very hard to get good grades and get relevant professional experience to get a job I would be happy with after graduation, which I did. It's not what I envisioned myself as, but I am thankful I did it because it's giving me the time and flexibility to figure out what it is I really want to do. If you feel passionate about one thing but you feel another thing is calling you, for whatever reason that may be, you have to weigh the pros and cons and decide if the new opportunity is worth the risk of diverting from your passion or your vision.

Look at Ken Jeong on masked Singer. A doctor who became a comedian, movie star, etc. Many of us take a path then end up in a totally different place.
