How Do You Define Intellectual Property ?
If you look at most word dictionaries or law dictionaries this is what they define it to be:
What does intellectual really mean ? Intellectual refers to the, ” Mind “. Right ? Property means something tangible or in this case because they are combined means Property of the Mind or Created by the Mind.
So now that we have that cleared up, What is the most powerful intellectual property you can own ?
It’s the same which created the property itself, ” Your Mind “. If nurtured correctly it is the most powerful asset you can own.
The beauty of it is that everyone is born with one and can be developed to overcome whatever obstacles or challenges you encounter in life.
This is probably the biggest obstacle itself the misunderstood potential of the mind. It is engraved into our minds from young, poor or challenged in one way or another that you can not be or acquire what other successful entrepreneurs have achieved.
First, Erase it from your thoughts. Second, Don’t believe what anyone tells you unless you have determined it for yourself.
I hear more often than not, I can not accomplish this because or I can’t do this because I don’t have any money or whatever the excuse is…Stop Yourself from that negative mindset.
If you don’t know, You Learn. If you can’t, Ask yourself Why ?
The most powerful intellectual property you can own is, ” Your Mind “
This is probably going to shock you. You know that term loosely used in business, education and everywhere else, ” Knowledge Is Power “.
It is commonly attributed to Sir Francis Bacon, although there is no known occurrence of this precise phrase in Bacon’s English or Latin writings. However, the expression “ipsa scientia potestas est” (‘knowledge itself is power’) occurs in Bacon’s Meditationes Sacrae (1597). That’s over 400 years ago that since this term has been used and it is not by accident.
So, Why is the mind the most powerful intellectual property you can own ? Because the knowledge unlike a tangible property, it will last you a lifetime.
If you had a tangible property it can be broken or destroyed and you can easily be out of business sought of speak. But intellectual property is in the mind and it is why successful entrepreneurs are continuously developing their intellectual property, ” Their Mind “.
It is why no matter where you are in your life or business it is detrimental that you start developing your most powerful intellectual property if you want to change your circumstances or whatever goals you want to achieve in business or in life.
