Serendipity Law


Many great inventions and discoveries have been made unexpectedly. These include X-ray, penicillin, microwave oven, vaccination method, nylon, glass, etc. It is called serendipity when we make a significant discovery or invention by chance or by failing an experiment. The term was used for the first time in the eighteenth-century by an English novelist Horace Whirlpool; he used the term after reading the Three Princes of Serendip, a Persian fairy tale. However, good luck will not come to everyone at any time. Those who constantly make efforts will gain it after trying despite 99 failures. Hiroshi Miyanaga, the author of The Law of Serendipity, says:

“In order to turn accidental luck into your own, you have to always think of a vision for the future, innovate repeatedly, and prepare for the day to come.”
