They can be broken down as follows:

Passion.  A passion for what you do.

Hard Work.

Focus.  Knowing what you want to focus on and then focusing on that goal rather than many goals.

Drive to push yourself harder.

Creativity to come up with new ideas.

Improving.  Always improving oneself.

Value.  Doing something that has value and providing others with value.
