Most Helpful Girl
Passion, creativity, experience and very high stamina for long hours. You need to WANT it for yourself and mean it otherwise you'd never make it.
I am a chef. Haven't been for very long but looking at a possible promotion soon. I don't get weekends off, the hours are extremely long and anti-social, and I get very few breaks but I learn new skills and techniques every single day. It'll take years and years to be a top chef so you need to be determined.

First before you worry about the recipes and the kitchen, develop an arrogant mindset. Have a chip on your shoulder. It's not enough for you to succeed, all others must fail! You must imagine a crowd of detractors and critics surrounding you at all times, jeering you, insulting you, and preying on your every mistake. Imagine a rival cook working feverishly on the counter behind you, trying to cook up something that will put you to shame and end your career. You're not just scrambling some fucking eggs, you're throwing your scabbard into the sea, READY TO DIE to beat your enemies.
You must become paranoid to the point of schizophrenia, my friend. You must make everything in your life about outwitting your enemies. Imagine enemies everywhere. Talk about your enemies, write about your enemies, always be thinking about your enemies, sharpening their knives to eviscerate you the instant you falter!
