Not long ago, before doing a seminar in Green Bay, Wisconsin, I stopped by Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers football team.

What a history that team and that community have together. It was on August 11, 1919, that Curly Lambeau and George Calhoun got together not far from the current stadium, on Cherry Street in downtown Green Bay, and decided to form a football team.

In order to help out with the cost of the jerseys and other equipment, it was the company that Curly Lambeau worked for as a clerk, for $250 a month, that came through. The Indian Packing Company gave them the money for the jerseys and the other equipment that was needed. Thus the name “The Packers”.

Since 1919, this team, through ups and downs, has succeeded in an amazing way. The team has won 12 National Football League championships. They have 21 members in the Football Hall of Fame.

Throughout their history, including the work of the famed coach Vince Lombardi, they have created a history of excellence.

This is the only team in the National Football League that is totally owned by the people of Green Bay and of the world. Many of the residents of that city are stockholders in the Green Bay Packers.

I believe the Packers have succeeded so much over the years because they have strived for excellence. And that’s what this message is all about. For all of us to do a little more to strive for excellence every day of our lives.

My mother said, “I don’t have time not to do it well the first time.” What if we made our best effort in every situation the first time? Whether it’s in our relationships, finances, career, or in our health – to strive for excellence the first time.

What a big difference that could make in all of our lives.

You are special. You are unique. You are destined for greatness. As they do so well at Lambeau Field, I see it in you, you are a Champion!
