Peak High Velocity Part 1 - "Physically, All In"

Ready:

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him - Colossians 3:17

Set:

Recently I was coaching my hockey team between periods, at the end of my one minute talk, I said let’s go! My team shouted “All In!” After the game,  I was reflecting on what this chant “All In” means to me and how the team perceived these words.

“All In” to me means we are engaging in Peak High Velocity. Engaging in Peak High Velocity means engaging 100% physically, 100% emotionally, 100% mentally, and 100% spiritually. Physically we train and educate ourselves on the best nutrition and workout training systems that we can afford. We push our bodies beyond what our mind thinks we can do.  

From a physiologic perspective, research suggests our bodies can go two to three times further than our brain will allow us. Pushing our bodies to train at the highest levels will hopefully give us the greatest quantity of energy physically possible, so we can endure the physical demands of the job or sport. 

Obtaining the greatest quantity of energy humanly possible is one of the most difficult tasks to master. Does being physically in shape help a corporate individual with their developmental and social aspects of their career?

According to the power of full engagement authors Jim Loehr, and Tony Schwartz “Becoming fully engaged requires energy, not time, and it's our most precious resource. Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance. The number of hours in a day is fixed, but the quality of and quantity of energy available to us is not. This our most precious resource.”

“All in” physically means training our bodies, stretching and confusing our muscles on a daily and weekly basis. Training physically has nothing to do with talent or skill, it’s about commitment and passion for your sport or career. 

Paul said in Galatians “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me, The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. - Galatians 2:19-20

  1. Do you have one foot in the world and one foot walking with God?

  2. How will you exercise your life of faith in Christ as you compete this week?

  3. How can you go “All In” for your teammates and thereby demonstrate sacrificial love for them?

When a team is made up of individuals who each adopt an “All In” mentality, and give physically everything they have, their personal and team chances of success are greatly enhanced. Their commitment to and love for their teammates makes for an atmosphere that leads to optimum performance. Full engagement draws on physical, emotional, and mental capacities. Creating awareness to this new level is the first step.

Pray and ask Jesus to show you where, how, and what you need to change to engage in Peak High Velocity.
