Renew Your Entrepreneurial Spirit To keep your business on track to success, make time to sit down for a big meeting--with yourself.

By Romanus Wolter

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Nearly every entrepreneur I've met in my career has a purposeful and directed passion that drives their every move. It's that "do it my way" energy that I find so inspirational in my line of business. The indomitable belief entrepreneurs have in themselves and their dreams is by far their most valuable asset.

It takes hard work to continually transform that passion into fresh ideas and new approaches to problem solving. It's easy to get wrapped up in the mundane yet necessary daily management activities of your business. To power your continued success, make it a top priority to constantly renew your entrepreneurial spirit.

Stay connected to your drive and let your passion infuse your business with big-picture thinking by scheduling time for your own private "meeting of one." Setting aside time for this meeting keeps you focused on your current goals and inspires new ideas for taking your business to the next level.
