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, 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 broad assortment 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 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 achieving personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic premise is that one can achieve a state of personal development by fostering positive thinking in oneself and boosting one’s self-confidence degree. By applying such teachings as the eight-limbed ladder of self-help, one is able to attain self-actualization, which then leads to 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’s 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 to the United States Army. The book was later turned into a television series and currently has over one million copies in print. There is even a picture version of the book available on DVD.
Additionally, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials outside of the classroom. By way of example, he is the author of numerous medical publications and is a certified chiropractic physician. In addition, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV show”Survivor.” In this series, he was portrayed as a contestant who struggled with a severe heart condition. Because 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 address is self-improvement. Many of his videos and books 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 instance, he spoke about the need to change our negative mindset. According to Chopra, if we continue to think this way, then we will stay stuck in our misery.
But some people may wonder whether there is any validity to the notion 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 generally is a relatively long tradition. Many ancient philosophies, spiritual texts, and motivational speakers have addressed the issue of self-improvement. Most of these have also attempted to make sense of the idea of self-improvement and motivation.
By way of example, some of the very best 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 many ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think about what it means to be moved. As they say,”motivation starts with a desire to change.”
