    Default Please tell the definition of "what it takes"

    I often find this idiom (ahhem I actually don't know is it Idiom or not :P)
    "WHAT IT TAKES"

    For example :
    To go more than WHAT IT TAKES,

    To live as WHAT IT TAKES

    We are afraid about WHAT IT TAKES to achieve career success

    To go beyond WHAT IT TAKES
    and etcetera

    I really need you explanation
    Thanx ahead :)

    To go more than WHAT IT TAKES,

    To live as WHAT IT TAKES. These first two don't make any sense.

    We are afraid about WHAT IT TAKES to achieve career success. We are afraid of what we will have to do, what will be necessary, to achieve success.

    To go beyond WHAT IT TAKES. To do more than is necessary.
