The `Jealousy` singer admits he has had to develop a thick skin since entering the music business, but would never intentionally treat someone badly to get what he wanted.
He said: "I am quietly competitive. You need nerves of steel to stick around in the music business.
"But I would never walk over anyone to get what I wanted. I want to feel that I`ve done as much as I can, because we`re not here for long."
Since rising to fame on UK TV talent show `Pop Idol` in 2002, Will has released five studio albums, and he admits he is more "proud" of his accomplishments than he has ever been
He told Stylist magazine: "It`s amazing that I`m still around after five albums and a greatest hits compilation.
"I`m even more proud of my work today than I was 10 years ago. It`s not that I`m not proud of my past but what I`m doing now both in music and outside of it, is stuff I`m really happy to put my name to."
