There are many professionals like doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc. who take up flying on their spare time. It is indeed a passion that is ready built in and instilled in one's self, consciously or subconsciously. Then it becomes a realization of one's longtime dream.
That makes aviators a rare breed of men. You must be like a bird to fly. You can never teach and make a dog fly!
