00:00:00 Humans are social animals and thrive in groups. Despite living in a connected world, loneliness has become a public health crisis. Loneliness is linked to depression and various health problems, increasing the risk of death. Collaboration is the antidote to loneliness.

Collaboration is essential for human beings as social animals.

💔 Loneliness has become a widespread issue, with around 70% of the population experiencing it.

💰 Loneliness not only affects mental health but also increases the risk of various health problems and mortality.

00:02:02 Living in a competitive society, we constantly strive to be the strongest, healthiest, and richest, even at the expense of others. As a result, communities are divided into winners and losers, causing the weak to leave. In the end, our natural instinct to belong may be overridden by the logical decision to seek a supportive community.

🔑 Living in a competitive society, we have learned to exploit our communities for personal gain and abandon them when we no longer need them.

💪 Competition is not inherently problematic, as it brings out the best in us and pushes us to reach our full potential.

👥 The problem arises when an individual's value in a society is determined solely by their achievements and when winning becomes the ultimate goal.

00:04:01 Collaboration and competition are both necessary for personal and societal growth. Focusing solely on oneself may lead to loneliness, while focusing only on the community may limit individual potential.

00:06:02 Collaboration in an individual sport like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is key to becoming a better fighter. Having diverse training partners who support and challenge each other is essential. By working together, we can improve and excel in this gentle art of fighting.

🥋 Collaboration is essential in sports, as individual athletes rely on training partners to improve their skills.

💪 Competition in sports is driven by the desire to win and the fear of losing, which motivates athletes to give their best.

🌍 Despite being an individual sport, athletes need a supportive team around them for training and guidance.

🌱 Building a supportive community that fosters cooperation and belonging is essential for success.

00:10:08 Collaboration and community are essential for personal growth. By supporting and improving your team, you create a positive impact on your community.

🌟 Collaboration is essential to improve as individuals and as a community.

👥 Being part of a community, whether it is a family or a group, provides support and opportunities for growth.

🤝 Helping others benefits both oneself and the community, even if not everyone reciprocates.

00:12:09 Collaboration and competition are essential for personal growth and achieving ambitious goals. Building a larger community leads to more opportunities for collaboration. It's beneficial to have everyone on the planet be part of your team.

🤝 Collaboration is important because it is in your best interest to be part of a better team.

🌍 For ambitious goals, you need a larger community and more people to collaborate with.

💪 Competition should be healthy, making everyone better, without the need to succeed at the expense of others.
