I keep hearing guru’s differentiate offline relationships (real) from online relationships (virtual) and in my opinion, its wrong.
Here’s the smart tip of the day; don’t treat them differently!
To me they are one in the same.
I’m a business guy. Business makes my world go around.
Business is getting done in your community every day; just the exact same way social business gets done – everyday.
The fact is;
Your “real world” is where you invest your mind, will and emotions
This is as real as life will ever get for you, me or anyone else who resides above ground.
These are the very things that are growing and expanding in you every day that really matter… The rest is just flesh.
Any activity that influences these three things in you – ARE REAL and shaping your future.
I think I just identified in my own little mind why it is so many people do not tap into the magic of the social web.
Ask yourself this one question; if your “real world” friends thought of you in this manner, do you think you could sense it?
Let me help you; absolutely!
Do you really believe folks you meet online who are genuinely investing themselves in this activity can’t sense the same thing?
Let me help again; they absolutely can!
The magic of your life online or off occurs through developing strong relationships with people you value.
Don’t for one second believe these Yahoo’s who are saying anything to the contrary.
It’s the difference between a life-changing experience and doing meaningful work, or dying on the vine being swallowed whole by the shallowness of life.
Do you see your online friends differently from those offline?
