Description of the Leader
The leader I've chosen to write about is Dr. Deepak Chopra, popularly acknowledged as one of the world's greatest leaders in the field of alternative medicine and unified consciousness.
It was during the years I worked for a fortune 100 company in the US, that I was drawn to Dr.Chopra's teachings. This period in my life was primarily marked by complete dis-satisfaction at work, as there was a sole demand to find ways to be more productive, to meet or exceed the bottom-line, to the exclusion of everything else.
Being in this pressured environment drew me to critically examine all concepts that I had upheld, and to find out what I actually wanted from life. These questions lead me to one of Deepak's workshops.
At the end of this remarkable lecture, there was a clear sense of the tremendous possibility, to flow with life, without being consumed by thoughts of what each event in life should "be" or "bring". So, this knowledge helped me at that crucial time, to resolve the dilemma of staying in the job, and has subsequently opened up infinite pathways to align with it in my everyday life.
