Dr. Guy Reikman describes a best practice for alignment as the creation of your own Virtual Board of Trustees. Your Virtual Board of Trustees (VBT) is populated by individuals who best represent or role model “successful traits” in each of your Lifetime Value Accounts. This group can include people you know well, celebrities, or even fictional characters, whomever you choose. Mentally access this VBT whenever faced with a question of appropriate behavior or response in their respective Life Value Category…”What would Yoda do here?” Below, fill in the list of accounts in your life on the left. On the right you will choose your own Virtual Board of Trustees – they can be people you know, people you don’t know, or people you simply look up to. By identifying who is on your Board of Trustees, you will be able to access their behavior or response whenever you desire to.

Everyone has a core purpose. Its hardwired into your body. You may not have discovered it yet, but how can people live without a purpose? How can people function? How can people be motivated? How can people be tolerant? How can people be fueled? Directed? Guided? Without a purpose? Without knowing your core purpose, you’ll have no direction in which to go.
People’s spirits are gone. And your health follows your spirits out the door as they are getting beat down by the day in day out routine. It comes down to whether or not you are living the life that you originally envisioned. Many are just getting through the day, hoping that tomorrow will be better.
Years from now when you realize that your energy, motivation, and focus are missing (or maybe they are missing now?), you may find yourself wondering “Why?” What it comes down to, is that for many people, no one has ever encouraged you to sit down and take pen to ink. Get quiet, get sincere, get authentic and get it touch with exactly whats really important to you.

It is widely accepted that our lives can be separated into seven major categories. At Bonfire, we refer to these as the Lifetime Value Accounts. These are the accounts into which you divide and invest your limited resources (Time, Energy, Focus and Money).
They are as follows:
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: Your Spark Journaling Exercises:
Each day, you will be asked to answer two questions pertaining to one category of Seven Lifetime Value Account categories.
This means you will answer a different Lifetime Value Account category each day of that first week. In other words, you will be answering the same two questions all week, but each day you will be answering them for a different category of your life.
For example: If it’s Day One, you would answer the question as it relates to your Physical Lifetime Value Account.
Question: With whom or what should I have more gratitude and appreciation for today?
Again, because it’s Day One, your answer would pertain to the Physical category and record it in your journal that day.
Answer: “I am grateful that I have begun the Bonfire Health program, and I am excited to see how my health will change and what my body will look like as I continue to commit to moving my body every day.”
If you were on Day Two, you would be answering the same question, but this time in the Spiritual category:
Question: With whom or what should I show more gratitude and appreciation for today?
Because you are on Day Two, you would answer in relation to the Spiritual category of your Lifetime Value Accounts.
Answer: “I am so thankful that I am taking the time to record my thoughts each day. These exercises are really helpful and I am experiencing a greater understanding of how I react to situations.”
