Hello and welcome to today. How are you all today?
I am guessing that if you are reading this, you are online? If you are online, are you feeling ok? Are you feeling resilient?
What do I mean by resilient? This is your ability to bounce back after a difficult situation or harmful occurrence, resilience is when something in life knocks you down that you can get back up and be stronger than ever.
Being resilient doesn’t mean that you will never feel stressed or overwhelmed, but it means that you can deal with it in a more proactive way, you can protect yourself and others from harm, being safe online should be your number 1 priority.
So, imagine that you have woken up, and went straight to your news feed on twitter or Facebook, you read something that is either aimed at you or you misinterpret what you have read. How does that make you feel? Sad, down, depressed, angry, enraged, isolated, or worse?
What if someone has written a review about your business that is so cruel and unkind that you think that it will damage your business beyond repair?
BUT WAIT, we cannot be in control of other people and their opinions, we don’t OWN other people, so we cannot stop people writing harsh, abrasive things online, we can’t stop people being trolls…..right?
NO, WRONG! That is wrong because there are lots of ways to prevent harsh and damaging things being written about us.
Also, there are techniques that we can use so that we are not defined by what we read on social media.
But, what if YOU have written something? A rant, a rumour, something harmful and damaging? You need to STOP IT – you are breaking the law. Have you created a FAKE PROFILE to abuse, groom and damage someone? I will advise, raise awareness and educate people on what to do if they are being bullied online by YOU! It’s in my book, you need to read it.
My mission is to raise awareness about online resilience, being resilient online is my number 1 goal.
I have a book on the subject, this will be available in kindle also – please go here to pre-order www.resilienceonline.co.uk
I also offer training and public speaking on the subject, if this is something that you or your organisation would benefit from, please contact me here or 07955291578 – Can you afford not to?
I look forward to hearing from you.
