Deepak Chopra has been an influential figure in the alternative health movement and an accomplished medical, alternative practitioner. His most significant books are Timeless Mind, Ageless Body and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, every published in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it was not until 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 wide range of readers. The principles he promotes have had the effect of establishing him as a pioneer in the other self-improvement circles. But, there have always been critics who question the methods that he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim he takes a random approach to self-improvement through motivational 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 achieving personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic assumption is that one can attain a state of personal growth by fostering positive thinking in oneself and boosting 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 leads to the achievement 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 necessarily mean Deepak Chopra’s influence goes beyond the boundaries of alternative medicine. He’s still very much a part of the mainstream medical care community. For example, when he published 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 movie version of the publication available on DVD.
Additionally, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials beyond the classroom. By way of instance, he is the author of numerous medical publications and is a certified chiropractic physician. In addition, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV series”Survivor.” In this series, he was portrayed as a contestant who struggled with a serious heart condition. Because of this, he held many discussions about improving one’s self-health through diet books, seminars, and speaking engagements.
One of those things that Chopra’s talk radio shows speech is self-improvement. Many of his books and videos tackle this matter. He discusses how to use the power of the mind to address some of the difficulties we experience in our own lives. For instance, he talked about the need to change our negative mindset. According to Chopra, if we continue to think this way, then we’ll stay stuck in our misery.
However, some people may wonder whether there is any validity to the notion of motivational self-improvement. In answer to this question, the solution is that while the notion of self-improvement might 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 dilemma of self-improvement. The majority of these have also attempted to make sense of the concept of self-improvement and motivation.
For example, a number of the top speakers will tackle issues such as self-esteem, confidence, motivation, and perseverance. All these are important and may contribute to our overall happiness and well-being. What many speakers do is highlight that there are many 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.”
