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 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 books attract a wide assortment of readers. The principles he boosts have had the effect of establishing him as a pioneer 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 explanatory books. They also point out that his teachings contradict the common belief that knowledge alone will bring about self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of attaining personal development isn’t far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic assumption is that one can achieve 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 in turn results in 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 mean that 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 series and now has more than one million copies in print. There’s even a picture version of the publication available on DVD.
In addition, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials beyond the classroom. For example, he’s the author of numerous medical publications and is a certified chiropractic doctor. Additionally, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV series”Survivor.” In this show, he was depicted as a contestant who fought with a serious heart condition. As a result 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 address this matter. He discusses how to use the power of the mind to deal with a few of the difficulties we encounter in our lives. By way of instance, he talked about the need to change our negative mindset. According to Chopra, if we continue to think that way, then we’ll remain stuck in our misery.
But some people might wonder whether there’s 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, spiritual texts, and motivational speakers have addressed the dilemma of self-improvement. Most of these 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 such as self-esteem, confidence, motivation, and perseverance. All of these are important and may 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 about what it means to be motivated. As they state,”motivation begins with a desire to change.”
