Just Like That.



I am 25 years old. I am from Ireland. I finished college last year with a first class honors degree in accountancy and finance and I am now working in the finance industry.

Just Like That.

I am Irish and I had never heard about The Secret but I was indirectly using the law of attraction by being a huge fan of Conor McGregor and his mind set. For those who haven’t heard of Conor, he is an Irish mixed martial artist who came from a normal background in Dublin and is now the UFC featherweight champion. When he first joined the UFC he was on social welfare and now he is a multi-millionaire. I watched a documentary on him and it really inspired me, particularly the quote Conor quoted from Abraham Lincoln in the intro “You can have anything you want if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish, if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.” You can watch the documentary at

I was in my final year of college when Conor was rising to the top of the UFC and this inspired me to go and get a first class honors degree in my course, which I did.

After that I first watched The Secret movie, it all made sense that Conor had being using The Secret. After I watched it I decided that I too would take a one dollar bill and draw four zeros after the one, in pencil. I put it somewhere I could see it, right beside my bed inside the frame of my first class honors degree, for extra inspiration.

The next morning after I did it, I s**t you not, my father came over and told me he was going to sign the house over to me as part of his estate planning. I could not believe it. Needless to say the house is worth more than $10,000 and even more than $100,000! So now I have skipped a zero and when I erase the four zeros, I get to put in six! 1,000,000 is next. Update to follow.
