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 realm of self-help writing, with his first book, Think and Grow Rich.
Though a controversial figure who presents himself as a guru, his novels attract a broad range of readers. The principles he promotes have had the effect of establishing him as a leader in the alternative self-improvement circles. However, there have always been critics who question the methods that he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim that he takes a random approach to self-improvement through motivational saying and self-help books. They also point out that his teachings contradict the common belief that knowledge alone will lead to self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of attaining personal development is not far removed from other medication practices. His basic assumption is that one can achieve a state of personal development 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 can attain self-actualization, which then results in the achievement of the aims 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 is still very much a part of the mainstream medical care community. For Instance, when he published the book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, he used the book to launch an initiative for the United States Army. The book was later turned into a television set and now has over one million copies in print. There is even a movie version of the book available on DVD.
In addition, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials beyond the classroom. For example, he is the author of numerous medical books and is a certified chiropractic doctor. Additionally, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV show”Survivor.” In this series, he was portrayed as a contestant who fought 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 the things that Chopra’s talk radio shows speech is self-improvement. Many of his books and videos address this matter. He discusses how to use the power of the mind to address a few of the difficulties we encounter in our own lives. For example, he spoke about the need to change our negative mindset. According to Chopra, if we continue to think that way, then we will stay stuck in our distress.
However, some people might 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, spiritual texts, and motivational speakers have addressed the issue of self-improvement. Most of them have also attempted to make sense of the concept of self-improvement and motivation.
By way of example, a number of the top speakers will tackle issues like self-esteem, confidence, motivation, and perseverance. All of these are important and can 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 begins with a desire to change.”
