Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

But there are ways to rekindle your entrepreneurial fire. Try these tips:

  • Create a motivating office environment. Surround yourself with positive reminders of how far you've come.
  • Give speeches. Sharing your story with others can refresh your spirits, and you may even learn a thing or two.
  • Surround yourself with positive people. Avoid those toxic people who drain you and poison your attitude.
  • Don't forget to reward yourself. Create deadlines, offer yourself an incentive to help sweeten the pot and make sure you take the time to celebrate your victory.
