Victoria Beckham: I need to work

Victoria Beckham has revealed she works because she feels the need to, not because she has to.

The star, who balances occasional Spice Girls duties with her career as a designer and being a mum of four, revealed in a new interview that she works hard because she has something to prove to herself.

She told Elle magazine: "I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I don't have to work, I need to work.

"All these people [fellow fashion designers], they've not just been given anything. They've worked hard. And I've never been given anything either."

Victoria said she and footballer husband David Beckham both have a good attitude to work.

"I have a good work ethic; David has an incredible work ethic. I want my kids to have a good work ethic," she said. 'I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it."

The 38-year-old also hinted that she has always questioned her popularity.

She said: "When I was on stage with the Spice Girls, I thought people were there to see the other four and not me. And when I go out with David and people take pictures I think, 'They're here to take David's picture'."

With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
