Deepak Chopra has been an influential figure in the alternative health movement and an accomplished medical, alternative practitioner. His most important books are Timeless Mind, Ageless Body and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, every published 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.
Though 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. However, 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 bring about self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of achieving 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 in turn leads to the accomplishment of the goals set by the mind. Therefore, 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 health 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 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. By way of instance, he’s the author of numerous medical publications and is a certified chiropractic doctor. In addition, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV series”Survivor.” In this series, he was portrayed as a contestant who fought with a serious heart condition. Because 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 books and videos address 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 that way, then we’ll stay stuck in our distress.
However, some people may wonder whether there’s any validity to the idea of motivational self-improvement. In answer to this question, the answer 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 dilemma of self-improvement. Most of them have also attempted to make sense of the idea 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 a number of ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think about what it means to be motivated. As they say,”motivation starts with a desire to change.”
