You have yet to fathom the true power that a positive reputation can have. However, now is a fantastic time to understand. We are living in an age where ethics, trust, and honor are starting to be appreciated in a completely new way. Consider what you reveal others by what you say and how you behave. Think about a few men and women that you admire, and if they have powerful personal traits you can begin to emulate them?

Make a promise to yourself that that will never happen to you.

 

If you scored 23 – 30 points:
You are aware that a positive reputation opens doors or slams others closed – that mindset alone will catapult you ahead of the competition. The world needs more people like you, show them the way to get it done by carrying on your good reputation management beliefs and knowledge.

If you scored less than 12 points:

You may not have thought of how significant a positive reputation is in our daily lives. The way that it opens doorways or adversely closes others. We are all human, we make mistakes, but despite the fact that you might not know about this. Gaining a better understanding of how to utilize your reputation more efficiently will set you up for a successful future. Giving you the safety net you need in case anything negative or unwanted should appear online in the future.

 

If you scored 13 – 22 points:

Whether you know it or not, you get a fair comprehension of how reputation may affect work and decisions for us. It is imperative that you mind what you say and remember that what you do may damage or improve your reputation over time. You will stack the odds in your favor more frequently the more you practice reputation management.

 

You may have heard from experience that matters are not always what they appear and occasionally, what individuals say about themselves is ar from reality. Accepting this rather than taking advice at face-value is a helpful skill to possess. Continue to behave with integrity, develop trust in your relationships and you are standing will continue to be improved.

 

If you scored 23 – 30 points:
By now you should fully understand that your reputation (good or bad) will either open new opportunities for you or blacklist you from the world entirely. That understanding allows you to act sensibly in many instances and protect and improve your reputation. Helping others understand that by modeling positive behavior around their reputation encourages other people to observe how their reputation isn’t about what you do or say. But about who you are as an individual and the values that you demonstrate today. You’re most likely affecting others in ways you do not even recognize. Our world needs more folks like you… show them the way to get it done by carrying in your good reputation practices.

 

NetReputation’s Top ‘Online Reputation-Savvy’ Tips for Parents:

1. Openly discuss reputation issues with your children, providing examples of celebrities or people they know, that demonstrate how reputation can open doors or slam them shut

2. Encourage your children to ask the question ‘is there more to this than meets the eye?’ and to not accept everything at face value

3. Actively model good reputation behavior whenever you can, especially in terms of thinking things through rather than reacting instinctively

4. Avoid blaming others and making excuses for your behavior. Remember – you always have a choice. Avoid putting yourself in situations that could reflect badly on you and those around you.

5. Not caring about reputation doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It just means you have less control over it.
