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, every printed in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it was not until 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 range of readers. The principles he promotes have had the effect of establishing him as a leader in the alternative self-improvement circles. But, there have always been critics who question the methods that he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim that he takes a haphazard 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 lead to self-improvement.
Deepak Chopra’s method of attaining personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic premise is that one can achieve a state of personal growth by fostering positive believing in oneself and boosting one’s self-confidence degree. 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 goals set by the mind. As such, 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’s still very much a part of the mainstream health care community. For Instance, 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 currently has more than 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 beyond the classroom. For 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 depicted as a contestant who struggled with a severe 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 tackle this matter. He discusses how to use the power of the mind to address some of the difficulties we encounter 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 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 notion 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 dilemma of self-improvement. The majority of these have also attempted to make sense of the idea of self-improvement and motivation.
For example, some of the top 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 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 state,”motivation begins with a desire to change.”
