Deepak Chopra has been an influential figure in the alternative health movement and an accomplished medical, alternative practitioner. His most significant novels are Timeless Mind, Ageless Body and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, each printed in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it wasn’t until 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 pioneer in the other self-improvement circles. But, there have always been critics who question the methods he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim 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 bring about self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of attaining personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic assumption is that one can achieve a state of personal development by fostering positive believing 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 in turn results in the accomplishment 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 mean that 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 for the United States Army. The book was later turned into a television series and now has over one million copies in print. There’s even a movie version of the publication available on DVD.
In addition, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials outside of the classroom. By way of 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 series, he was depicted as a contestant who struggled with a serious 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 those things that Chopra’s talk radio shows speech is self-improvement. Many of his videos and books tackle this matter. He discusses how to use the ability of the mind to address some of the difficulties we encounter 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’ll stay stuck in our distress.
But some people may wonder whether there is any validity to the idea of motivational self-improvement. In response to this question, the solution is that while the idea of self-improvement may be new to most people, self-help generally is a relatively long tradition. Many ancient philosophies, religious texts, and motivational speakers have addressed the issue of self-improvement. Most of them have also attempted to make sense of the concept of motivation and self-improvement.
For example, some of the very best speakers will address issues such as self-esteem, confidence, motivation, and perseverance. All these are important and can contribute to our overall happiness and well-being. What many speakers do is emphasize that there are many ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think of what it means to be moved. As they say,”motivation begins with a desire to change.”
