Beware the "Lone Ranger Mentality"

People, Power & Possibilities

By Donna Fisher
Contributing Writer

The "Lone Ranger Mentality" is an attitude of "I can do it on my own". This mentality gets in the way of your effectiveness by limiting the ideas, contributions and support of others. And, oftentimes, the thoughts, actions and behaviors represented by the "Lone Ranger Mentality" are just habits that you have developed over time. And because they are habits they can be upgraded to new, more productive habits. Here are some suggestions for shifting your mindset to create a more interdependent and productive approach to life.

Think about other automatic limiting thoughts that you have that you could shift for yourself:

By developing new "thought habits" you will change your actions, behaviors and way of relating to the world. We are here on this plant together to be of support to one another. Everyone's heard the phrase, "No man is an island" and yet it is still easy to keep ourselves isolated and disconnected. However, your power comes from your ability to connect with others to make a difference. Give up any and all of the "Lone Ranger" thoughts that may be lurking around in your consciousness. Trade it in for a more powerful, productive and fun approach of being interdependent, connected and inclusive.
