I know COOPERTITION isn’t really a word but I like what it stands for. It combines the best of Competition and Cooperation.
Many times we think of these words as separate but when they are combined in a positive environment they can lead to great things.
While I was at my Mastermind meeting in South Carolina we were told by the leaders of the Mastermind group that they were tracking our numbers (business finances, total number of clients, retention, clients lost etc.) and they ranking us based on those results against each other and others within our organization of fitness business owners.
Hearing this little piece of information raised the stakes of our meeting to another level! We all want the best for each other and COOPERATE to help each other succeed but at the same time there isn’t one of us who wants to be in second place or worst last! We are all COMPETITIVE and want to win.
When you combine the best of cooperation and competition you get COOPERTION!
I want you to compete against each other in and out of the gym. Challenge yourself against someone who you think is stronger than you. Challenge yourself against someone who you know shows up to every workout and busts their butt every time in the gym. Challenge yourself against someone you know is doing their cardio on their days off. Challenge yourself against someone who is planning their meals weekly to ensure their success.
Knowing all of our clients if you let that person know you were competing against them they would gladly cooperate and let you know what they were doing to succeed. The fastest way to success is do what other successful people are doing.
Who are you going to challenge? How are you going to measure your success? Get started today!
