As you are reading this article you have emerged into the online world. Long gone are the days when you could only find information in books, magazines, newspapers or from having a conversation with a professional. The need for information has led to people providing and demanding it through a quicker, more accessible way: the Internet.
If you think about it, people live a double life nowadays, a real one and a virtual one. And it has become obvious that you need to nurture your online existence as it intrinsically influences your real life in the individual quest for success.
Everyone lives a double life
It comes as no surprise that everyone takes this seriously. Since you can have what you need at the tip of your fingers, why not make the best of it? People try so hard to be seen and appreciated that they commit to their online persona as much — if not more — to their real one. Being known in the virtual world has given a chance to the shy and secluded people to manifest themselves, express their opinion, give their take on what they see — all meant to establish a more outgoing and outspoken persona.
It's not only about just having access to information, which in itself is such a great deal, but it also represents a wider voice for all kinds of people regardless of their social status, ethnicity or nationality. And this can only mean one thing: evolution. And we should not hinder it, but embrace it and contribute to its process. For instance, by having a product online you make it available to everyone everywhere, giving your audience what they have been looking for and facilitating the selling process. Thus, your product serves a greater purpose. And it's not hard to know what people want and need, because you have multiple ways of finding out just that, through search engines and specialized websites and apps.
The real and the virtual cannot be separated, but become more and more co-dependent. And wouldn't you like to have a better quality of life — the real one — just by not ignoring all the wonderful opportunities that the online has to offer?
The online world augments reality
We all want to succeed in life. We always try to be the best or at least do our best. In our small personal universe we always compete with peers for a raise, a promotion, a title, but our chances of success are divided by the number of competitors, their abilities and how many people we have to convince.
In our wider universe, which is the online, the same criteria apply when it comes to having great results. What is different, though, is the number of people you can convince of your skills or of the utility of your product. Given the fact that the virtual world is like a larger country with no borders, you have access to a wider audience where you can find plenty of people to persuade to buy from you, to listen to you, to follow and support you.
The online is and will continue to be a world in development which you would want to be part of. From watching and reading your favorite subjects to shopping and learning to paying bills and making transactions — and anything else you can think of — the world is there to give it to you.
Developed primarily as a source of information and as a method of communication, the online lets you do everything. It’s just natural that most people divide their time in between their online and offline lives.
Making the most of the online world

As a consequence of their online success, their real lives have taken a better turn, becoming more confident and active members of society, nonetheless contributing more to their communities. Thus, the online completes the offline.
