Imagine, if you will -- a gift.
よろしければ 贈り物を1つ想像して下さい
00:16
I'd like for you to picture it in your mind.
心の中に描いてみて下さい
00:20
It's not too big --
あまり大き過ぎず
00:23
about the size of a golf ball.
ゴルフボールくらいでしょうかね
00:25
So envision what it looks like all wrapped up.
箱の中身をイメージして下さい
00:27
But before I show you what's inside,
でも中身をお見せする前に 人生を
00:30
I will tell you, it's going to do incredible things for you.
大きく揺るがす物だとだけ言っておきます
00:33
It will bring all of your family together.
家族全員があなたの為に集まり
00:36
You will feel loved and appreciated like never before
溢れるほどの愛情と尊敬を受け
00:40
and reconnect with friends and acquaintances
長年連絡のなかった友人や知人から
00:43
you haven't heard from in years.
連絡を受けることでしょう
00:45
Adoration and admiration
敬愛され 褒めたてられ
00:47
will overwhelm you.
戸惑いすら感じるほどです
00:49
It will recalibrate what's most important in your life.
人生で最も重要なことを再確認させてくれます
00:52
It will redefine your sense
精神性や信頼とは何かを
00:55
of spirituality and faith.
再定義してくれるでしょう
00:57
You'll have a new understanding
身体に対する新たな理解と
01:00
and trust in your body.
信頼が芽生えます
01:02
You'll have unsurpassed vitality and energy.
この上ない活力を感じます
01:04
You'll expand your vocabulary,
語彙は豊かになり
01:07
meet new people,
新たな人々に出会い
01:09
and you'll have a healthier lifestyle.
より健康的な生活を送れます
01:11
And get this --
更に これがあれば
01:14
you'll have an eight-week vacation
全くなにもしなくてよい―
01:16
of doing absolutely nothing.
8週間の休暇を取れます
01:18
You'll eat countless gourmet meals.
たくさんのグルメを楽しみ
01:21
Flowers will arrive by the truckload.
大量の花束が贈られてきます
01:24
People will say to you,
人々は言うでしょう
01:27
"You look great. Have you had any work done?"
「調子よさそうだね 何かしたの?」
01:29
And you'll have a lifetime supply
加えて 一生分の
01:32
of good drugs.
医薬品が提供されます
01:34
You'll be challenged, inspired,
障害を前に 刺激 鼓舞され
01:37
motivated and humbled.
謙虚な気持ちになるでしょう
01:40
Your life will have new meaning.

01:43
Peace, health,

01:48
nirvana.
涅槃(ねはん)に行き着くでしょう
01:51
The price?
費用はいくらかって?
01:53
$55,000,
およそ5万5千ドルです
01:55
and that's an incredible deal.
ずいぶんおいしい話ですね
01:58
By now I know you're dying to know
中身が何で どこで手に入るか
02:01
what it is and where you can get one.
知りたくて仕方ないでしょう?
02:03
Does Amazon carry it?
Amazonで取り扱ってるのか?
02:06
Does it have the Apple logo on it?
アップルのロゴはついてるのか?
02:08
Is there a waiting list?
キャンセル待ちはあるのか?
02:10
Not likely.
どれも当てはまりません
02:13
This gift came to me about five months ago.
約5ヶ月前 私はこれを受け取りました
02:15
It looked more like this when it was all wrapped up --
こんな感じで包装されていました
02:18
not quite so pretty.
あまり見栄えしませんね
02:20
And this,
それからこれと
02:23
and then this.
これもです
02:26
It was a rare gem --
これは珍しい宝石で
02:29
a brain tumor,
私に多くを与えた贈り物
02:31
hemangioblastoma --
脳腫瘍です 正確には
02:33
the gift that keeps on giving.
血管芽細胞腫でした
02:36
And while I'm okay now,
私はもう元気ですが 皆さんには
02:39
I wouldn't wish this gift for you.
受け取って欲しくはありません
02:41
I'm not sure you'd want it.
皆さんが欲しいかもわかりませんし
02:43
But I wouldn't change my experience.
しかし私の経験を偽る気はありません
02:45
It profoundly altered my life
この贈り物によって 私の人生は
02:48
in ways I didn't expect
360度変わりました
02:51
in all the ways I just shared with you.
ここでお話したとおりです
02:53
So the next time you're faced
今後 皆さんが
02:55
with something that's unexpected,
思いがけない 厄介な
02:57
unwanted and uncertain,
先の読めないものに遭遇した際
03:00
consider
考えてみて下さい
03:03
that it just may be a gift.
それは贈り物なのかもしれません
03:05
(Applause)
(拍手)
