How many of us can say that we love our job and mean it? If you can, then make sure you hold on to that job and never let it go, because it’s rare to have what you have, and most people would kill to be in your position.

Psst! If the first paragraph doesn’t speak to you, and you’re looking for a new work environment or simply exploring your options; then here’s the good news – Evolve MMA is hiring!

Before you send in your resume, why not take a quick glimpse at life in Evolve? Today, Evolve Daily shares 5 Amazing Things You’ll Learn From Working at Evolve:

1) Smiling is the secret to having a better day

Life is not a bed of roses. There are bound to be bad days among the good ones. That’s why it’s important to make the better days count; so that going through the not-so-good ones would be worth it. After all, how will you be able to appreciate the great days if you don’t go through any rough ones?

One of the best ways you can start your day is to take a moment to think about something or someone you’re thankful for. This is because it would very likely put a smile on your face, and that would set the tone for a great day ahead.

You’ll learn to be optimistic when you work at Evolve, because everyone here looks on the bright side of life. After all, harping on negative things won’t improve your mood or situation. Negative people don’t survive for long at Evolve. We are optimists who want to change the world for the better. We believe in solutions. We believe in dreams. We believe in happiness.

When you learn to stay positive, you’ll notice that it’s not that difficult to get past the toughest parts of your day. What’s more, when you’re happy, the people around you would be happy too, because positive energy is contagious!


2) Progress is way more important than perfection

As much as we hate to admit it, there are times when we focus too much on the desired outcome rather than the process that comes with it. Unfortunately when we do so, we fail to notice the progress we’ve made. Instead, we dwell on how much further we have to go before reaching the ultimate goal.

But here’s the thing: the journey matters more than the destination, because it is what shapes and strengthens you. So the next time you feel like your goals are out of reach, take a step back and look at how far you’ve come.

At Evolve, you’ll learn to embrace the process that comes with working towards your goal. This is because your main focus would be to continuously improve yourself, and ultimately become the best version of yourself. As you take it a day at a time, you’ll notice steady progress and this would be a great reminder to yourself that you’re on the right track.


3) Learning is a never-ending journey

Every day is a new chance for us to pick up something new and try different things. However, we sometimes get too caught up in our day-to-day worries, or let fear get the better of us – and so, we end up letting these learning opportunities pass us by.

If you’re afraid of becoming stagnant – be it as a person or at work, then maybe it’s time to take a leap of faith and leave your comfort zone. Aim to do one thing that scares you everyday, and don’t let self-doubt stop you from taking risks. After all, if you never try, you’ll never know!

There are many opportunities to expand your horizons at Evolve. It’s only a matter of whether you’re willing to push your limits. Besides getting better your job, you can try out different kinds of martial arts and work towards your fitness goals, or simply interact with someone from a different background or culture and see the world from a new perspective!


4) It’s okay to fall sometimes, just remember to pick yourself up

In life, you’re bound to face your fair share of hiccups or setbacks. How you deal with them is what truly matters. So, as long as you never give up on yourself and find the strength to pick yourself up, you’ll eventually succeed.

When you join the Evolve Family, you’ll be surrounded by people who aren’t just colleagues, but lifelong friends that would be there for you, both inside and outside of work. Even when you’re down to your last 2%, and you feel like you can’t go on, you can definitely count on them to spur you on. What’s more, these awesome friends would inspire you to stay strong in the face of adversity.


5) Surround yourself with greatness to unleash your greatness

Whether we like it or not, we all become the average of the 5 people with whom we spend the most time. Consciously or subconsciously, we inherit lessons, habits, skills, standards, and experiences from others; all of these things can have a profound impact on who we ultimately become and how we view the world. It can shape our dreams, our futures, and our beliefs. It might not be easy to work in a family full of World Champions, Olympic athletes, Harvard MBAs, world-class business executives, limitless dreamers, and high achievers. However, it is definitely worth it because you will inevitably unleash your true greatness in life and become the best version of yourself. You will be inspired to achieve things that you never thought possible. One of the greatest things you’ll take away from working at Evolve is the ability to thrive in a world championship environment with the highest standards of excellence. When you become a part of the Evolve Family, you’ll learn the importance of teamwork, and strive to get every member of your team to the top, along with you. After all, who said it has to be lonely up there?
