Contributing editor Brendon Burchard joins SUCCESS Insider for this special bonus episode.

Favorite quote from this episode:

“I chose industriousness to make it very clear that it involves more than merely showing up and going through the motions. Many people who tell you they worked all day weren’t really working very hard at all, certainly not to the full extent of their abilities. An appetite for hard work must be present for success. Without it you have nothing to build on.”
