Deepak Chopra has been an influential figure in the alternative health movement and an accomplished medical, alternative practitioner. His most important novels are Timeless Mind, Ageless Body and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, every printed in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it was not till sometime in the late eighties he ventured into the world of self-help writing, with his first book, Think and Grow Rich.
Although a controversial figure who presents himself as a guru, his novels attract a broad assortment of readers. The principles he boosts have had the effect of establishing him as a leader in the other self-improvement circles. But, there have always been critics who question the methods he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim that he takes a random approach to self-improvement through inspirational saying and self explanatory books. They also point out that his teachings contradict the common notion that knowledge alone will lead to self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of attaining personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic premise is that one can attain a state of personal growth by fostering positive believing in oneself and fostering one’s self-confidence level. By applying such teachings as the eight-limbed ladder of self-help, one is able to attain self-actualization, which then results in the accomplishment of the goals set by the mind. As such, Deepak Chopra presents himself as a prominent figure within the alternative medicine community.
However, this doesn’t mean that Deepak Chopra’s influence goes beyond the boundaries of alternative medicine. He is still very much a part of the mainstream health care community. For Instance, when he wrote the book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, he used the book to launch an initiative to the United States Army. The book was later turned into a television set and now has more than one million copies in print. There’s even a picture version of the book available on DVD.
In addition, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials outside of the classroom. For example, he is the author of numerous medical books and is a certified chiropractic physician. Additionally, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV series”Survivor.” In this show, he was portrayed as a contestant who fought with a severe heart condition. As a result of this, he held many talks about improving one’s self-health through diet books, seminars, and speaking engagements.
One of the things that Chopra’s talk radio shows address is self-improvement. Many of his books and videos tackle this matter. He discusses how to use the ability of the mind to deal with some of the difficulties we experience in our own lives. For instance, he spoke about the need to change our negative mindset. According to Chopra, if we continue to think this way, then we will remain stuck in our misery.
But some people might wonder whether there’s any validity to the notion of motivational self-improvement. In response to this question, the answer is that while the idea of self-improvement may be new to most people, self-help in general is a relatively long tradition. Many ancient philosophies, religious texts, and motivational speakers have addressed the issue of self-improvement. Most of these have also attempted to make sense of the concept of self-improvement and motivation.
For example, some of the very best speakers will tackle issues such as self-esteem, confidence, motivation, and perseverance. All of these are important and may contribute to our overall happiness and well-being. What many speakers do is highlight that there are a number of ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think about what it means to be motivated. As they state,”motivation starts with a desire to change.”
