The good human attributes that contribute to success.
With his overall excellent physical and mental facilities, health and financial savvy, he has the shits to acquire and maintain his independent, mortgage-free, rent-free, leisurely and sporting life, even with a wife and several children. I'm not so endowed.

the best; great. when the word "the" is taken away, it has a completely opposite meaning.
"my father was a drug dealer"
"that must have been the shit!"
"it ruined his life and landed him in jail!"
"that must have been shitty."
