David Beckham always wanted to be 'the best'.
The 37-year-old soccer star- who has four children, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, seven-year-old Cruz and 10-month-old Harper with wife Victoria - is determined to do well at whatever he tries his hand to and insists he never takes anything on in a half-hearted fashion.
He said: 'Whatever I do, I want to be the best.
'I never do anything half-heartedly. I will continue to work hard and play hard and do everything I can to be successful whatever I do. I want to be the best. I think it's a god way to be.'
David and Victoria have an estimated joint fortune of around $290 million, but the sportsman insists their vast wealth is not a reason for them to retire, even though doing so would be 'easy'.
He added to Britain's Elle magazine: 'It would be easy to do that [retire] of course. It would be easy for me to retire or for Victoria to sit at home and be a wife and mum, but we're still young. There's no reason why we shouldn't continue [to work].'
