"The goal of an artist is to create the definitive work that cannot be surpassed" - George Bernard Shaw

"The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's determination."  - Tommy Lasorda

Not everyone wants to be the best, and most people don't work hard that hard to be the best. It most probably depends on each person's individual values, priorities and even their standards. But whats the difference between the people that become the best at what they do and the rest of the population? Most importantly, what does it take to be the best?

Most successful people, in any field share certain characteristics.  From athletes  to politicians there seems to be a recipe, albeit without exact measurements for the various ingredients.

The first and probably the most important ingredient is desire. It's almost always a prerequisite to want success. And not just want it but want it more than anybody else. This is like the spices using to bring aroma and taste ofany dish to life.

Next up is passion. It seems an obvious ingredient but many people lose their passion along the way, never fueling it with quick wins or anything else for that matter. In fact Vusi Tembekwayo , a world renowned speaker, believes that passion is outdated, that one needs to be obsessed to reach the pinnacle of success in their chosen fields. This is the meat of the dish, this can break or make the whole taste of the dish.

Then there is the part where you work harder and smarter than anyone else to get to the top. Most people are just content to do what they need to do. Successful people work beyond what was expcted them. People like Mohammed Ali, Michael Schumacher, Michael Jordan, Christiano Ronaldo, Steve Jobs are all legends, inspiring us in different ways. Their work ethic, their attitude and their success are a great example that should be followed. But even they, at some point had to decide which direction to go into to obtain their success. And this is the part that many get wrong even if they've successfully mixed together all the other ingredients.

Decision making is an underrated aspect of success. Who should be around you? Money over values? Success over principles?  This is what seperates the ordinary from the legendary people often times...
