Reba McEntire is a superstar who has built a wonderful career across the record and film businesses. According to the Oklahoma native, she credits her work ethic to her parents.

“If you love what you’re doing, you will always succeed because you will love your job,” she said. “I was lucky. I watched Mama and Daddy work on the cattle ranch harder than anyone I knew.”

And she developed a healthy competitive attitude with her siblings.

“Oh everything was about winning,” she said. “When we were released from our chores, we would run out of the house saying, ‘anything you can do, I can do better.’ We were very competitive. And that just continued on in my life.”
