Last week I got an email from Brett Brodie, and in it he shared the amazing experience of how he cheated death 3 weeks ago.
If Brett’s name rings a bell with you, it’s because he’s a fellow client.
In fact, he was one of the very first people to pick up a copy of the Automatic Income System, back in 2004.
Since that time, he’s accomplished many incredible things in his business, and his personal life.
Over the last several years, Brett and I have become close friends, and I talk with him on a regular basis.
That’s why it was so odd that I hadn’t heard from him recently.
After getting his email last week (which I’m sharing with you below) it all made perfect sense.
Needless to say, I’m extremely happy that Brett is still with us, because the truth of the matter his – he shouldn’t be.
As you read his email, you’re going to be moved, just as Lisa and I were.
More importantly, you’re going to have an entirely NEW outlook on life.
When Brett finishes telling you his story, I’ll be back with a closing comment.

It’s been an amazing 3 or so weeks in the Brodie household.As you may know I got injured in an explosion/fire and have been almost totally incapacitated for the entire time.I was helping light a huge bonfire, in fact 40ft long, 15ft wide and 10ft high.
Naturally, we had to use some fuel, namely gasoline and diesel to ignite it.
Little did we realize that being down in a gully with no wind, the gas fumes would create a fume boundary.
After letting the fuel sit for around 10 minutes, I proceeded to head towards the pile to light some dry leaves to then throw them onto the trail of gas we leaked out around 10ft from the pile of wood. I didn’t get near the trail….One quick flick test of my lighter, and – KABOOM.
I’m in the middle of a fireball that has consumed the entire area with a radius of 35 feet from the firewood.
Witnesses say the fireball shot 40-50ft in the air. How did I get out alive?It happened so quickly and left me no time to think.
People said I set a land speed record and came out of the fireball on fire.
Here’s what really happened… God picked me up and pulled me out of the fire.
According to the surgeon at the burn unit, there was not enough oxygen for me to have taken a breath, and make a decision to run. No possible way.
Plus I had a 30 foot run to get free of the flames, which by the way had me completely surrounded.
I do remember the sound of the flash.
I remember the smell of the fire.
Then I remember slowing down to a jog and being ‘put out’.
My ears were ringing, but I remember people running towards me asking and yelling if I was alright. I was in shock, but I was still.
My hair was on fire still, people brushing my hair and clothing and the burn to my skin was so intense, the doctor was amazed I could even walk.I received 2nd and 3rd degree burns to my face, mouth, lower right leg, 100% of my left leg and 80% of my left arm.
I had a beard and mustache at the time and it melted onto my face from the heat. My socks were melted to my ankles and the clothes I wore were shot.I am so grateful to be alive.
After many trips to the emergency room then burn unit treatment, I’m almost recovered, in record time.
I will tell you this; a visit to the burn unit anywhere on earth will make you quickly recognize how lucky you are.
The screaming and howling by patients is unbelievably horrific to say the least. I am now walking again.
After a few weeks I was able to take a bath, thank goodness and am left with one bandage on my left leg from the knee to my ankle.
I hope within 2 more weeks to be bandage free and slightly back to normal.I must admit, the pain intensity endured through serious burns to the skin is unlike no other.
There is basically no relief and pain medication stands in to put you to sleep for a few hours, but has no effect on the pain itself.
There are no antibiotics allowed, so keeping the wounds clean to avoid infection is most important.
The twice weekly ‘scrapings’ are unbearable, just imagine a wire brush on an open wound……ouch. Not to mention what happens when the area gets infected….Anyway, I have a renewed look upon life.
I know God has bigger plans and my purpose hasn’t been discovered yet.I have learned a few things the past few weeks and I will finish by sharing those with you:
* You can truly feel prayer
* Every day of life is precious
* You learn to appreciate riches in life when you nearly lose those on the top of your priority list
* There is nothing on TV during the day, except when the olympics are on
* Animals know when you’re hurting
* People do care…even those you thought didn’t
* It”s the little stuff that matters
* You are special
* Munee holds no value vs survival
* Fires spark new life, as in forests, same in humans
* There’s always someone else worse off than you
* What matters most to you probably doesn’t
* Silence is a cure for pain
* Eyebrows and eyelashes grow faster than facial hair
* Burns hurt worse than gunshots
* I don’t like bonfires
* Roses do smell nice
* Health trumps financial riches
* Forgive everyone
* Writing your thoughts is incredible therapy
* The phrase “I’m on fire” really means something
* There are lots of nicknames for burn victims. My favorites are bubblewrap, kingsford, charcoal, and sparky.
* It’s time to slow down and focus on exactly what direction I need to go
* Be grateful for loyal employees
* You’ve got to have a plan in case….for the what if’s….
* The weather channel actually has enough content for a 24hour period
* I have a great group of friends
* Nothing is Impossible with God
Hopefully you can learn a few things from my story because I wouldn’t wish this upon my worst enemies (even if I had any).
I’m back. Bigger and better than ever.
Life’s what you make it. (thanks Hannah)
I wish every one of you and your families the very best and I hope to talk with you soon.

Talk about a life-changing experience, and not only for Brett.
For YOU as well.
After reading Brett’s email, I wanted to do something REALLY special for you.
I called his cell phone this morning and invited him to join us for “The Ultimate Home Office Field Trip” on November 14-15th
Because Brett and I agree on so many things, the most important being that the purpose of our business is to provide our “dream lifestyle” – I wanted you to be able to hear from him as well.
I don’t know yet whether Brett will be able to join us live, but if not, I’m going to have him host a private phone seminar – just for Field Trip Registrants.
Those of you who are already registered for this event are going to be in for one heck of an experience when I introduce you to Brett.
