The best gift I ever survived

Adoration and admiration will overwhelm you. It will recalibrate what's most important in your life. It will redefine your sense of spirituality and faith. You'll have a new understanding and trust in your body.

Looking after your health is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Others also benefit – for a healthy heart is capable of loving more than any of us can realize and the impact that can have is incalculable.

Imagine, if you will -- a gift. I'd like for you to picture it in your mind. It's not too big -- about the size of a small bag of chips. So envision what it looks like all wrapped up. But before I tell you what's inside, I will tell you, it's going to do incredible things for you. It will bring all of your family together. You will feel loved and appreciated like never before and reconnect with friends and acquaintances you haven't heard from in years.

Adoration and admiration will overwhelm you. It will recalibrate what's most important in your life. It will redefine your sense of spirituality and faith. You'll have a new understanding and trust in your body.

You'll have unsurpassed vitality and energy. You'll expand your vocabulary, meet new people, and you'll have a healthier lifestyle. And get this -- you'll have a two-week vacation of doing absolutely nothing.

You'll eat countless healthy, nutritional meals. Flowers will arrive by truckload. People will say to you, "You look great. What have you been doing?" And you'll have a lifetime supply of good drugs.

You'll be challenged, inspired, motivated and humbled. Your life will have new meaning. Peace, health, serenity, happiness, nirvana.

The price? $45,000, and that's an incredible deal.

By now I know you're dying to know what it is and where you can get one. In this episode of "Wisdom With Charlie," you'll hear a moving, personal, 3-minute parable that shows how an unwanted experience -- frightening, traumatic, costly -- can turn out to be a priceless gift.
