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, each printed in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it wasn’t till sometime in the late eighties that he ventured into the realm of self-help writing, with his first book, Think and Grow Rich.
Although a controversial figure who presents himself as a guru, his books attract a wide range of readers. The principles he boosts 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 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 isn’t far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic assumption is that you can attain a state of personal development 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 can attain self-actualization, which then leads to 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 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 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 series and currently has more than 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 instance, he is the author of numerous medical publications and is a certified chiropractic doctor. Additionally, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV show”Survivor.” In this show, he was portrayed 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 experience in our own lives. By way of example, 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 might wonder whether there’s any validity to the notion of motivational self-improvement. In answer to this question, the solution is that while the notion 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. The majority of these have also tried to make sense of the concept of motivation and self-improvement.
For example, a number of the top speakers will tackle issues like 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 emphasize that there are a number of ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think of what it means to be motivated. As they say,”motivation starts with a desire to change.”
