Deepak Chopra has been an influential figure in the alternative health movement and an accomplished medical, alternative practitioner. His most important 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 he ventured into the world of self-help writing, together with his first book, Think and Grow Rich.
Though a controversial figure who presents himself as a guru, his books attract a broad range of readers. The principles he promotes have had the effect of establishing him as a pioneer in the alternative self-improvement circles. But, there have always been critics who question the methods he adopts. Deepak Chopra critics claim he takes a haphazard 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 attaining personal development is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic assumption is that one can attain a state of personal development by fostering positive believing 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 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 medical 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 now has more than one million copies in print. There’s 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. Additionally, 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 serious 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 books and videos address this matter. He discusses how to use the ability of the mind to address some of the difficulties we encounter in our lives. For instance, he talked 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 might wonder whether there’s any validity to the idea of motivational self-improvement. In response to this question, the answer is that while the idea of self-improvement might 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. The majority of them have also tried to make sense of the concept of self-improvement and motivation.
By way of example, some of the top speakers will tackle issues like 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 emphasize that there are many ways to approach self-improvement. They encourage us to think of what it means to be moved. As they say,”motivation begins with a desire to change.”
