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 published in 1994 and 1993 respectively. However, it wasn’t 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 wide assortment of readers. The principles he promotes 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 he takes a haphazard approach to self-improvement through inspirational saying and self-help 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 is not far removed from other alternative medicine practices. His basic assumption is that one can achieve a state of personal growth by fostering positive thinking in oneself and fostering one’s self-confidence level. By applying such teachings as the eight-limbed ladder of self-help, one is able to attain self-actualization, which then results in the achievement of the aims set by the mind. Therefore, 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 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 for 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 book available on DVD.
In addition, Deepak Chopra continues to hold many credentials outside of the classroom. For example, he’s the author of numerous medical books and is a certified chiropractic physician. Additionally, Deepak Chopra is a former contestant on the reality TV show”Survivor.” In this show, he was depicted as a contestant who struggled with a severe heart condition. As a result 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 videos and books tackle this matter. He discusses how to use the ability of the mind to address some of the difficulties we experience in our lives. For example, he spoke 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 is any validity to the notion 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 in general 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 idea of motivation and self-improvement.
For example, some of the very best speakers will address 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 of what it means to be motivated. As they say,”motivation begins with a desire to change.”
