Anyone who has ever been passed over for a promotion or failed to negotiate the pay raise they thought they deserved knows what it feels like to be down in the dumps. For the long-term unemployed -- about 5.3 million Americans -- feelings of anxiety are even more acute.

Deepak Chopra, the physician, spiritualist and author, thinks he has some advice that can help assuage the negative feelings that come with trying to get ahead. His new book, "Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life's Greatest Challenges," posits that many of us see only crisis in failure, and not the opportunity to do better.
