The Outrageous Conor McGregor

Outrageous Conor McGregor: His Irish Roots and an Improbable American Dream
By Jeremy Botter,
DUBLIN — For Conor McGregor, it all started when his sister told him about The Secret.

Erin McGregor had received a copy of the book from a friend, and she liked the things she read. She liked how the book told her that she could take control of her life. As a fitness model and bodybuilder, she was no stranger to discipline. She’d crafted hard, rugged muscles through years of self-control and hard work.

But the book told her she could take things to another level.

She enthusiastically told Conor about the book. Written by Rhonda Byrne and released in 2006, The Secret is based on the law of attraction. It tells the reader that the power of positive thinking can change their life and bring about anything they desire: money, wealth, happiness.
