What would happen if I Relentlessly believed in myself more then the law of gravity for 365 days. What if I didn’t let one day go by without shouting to the world my bad-assness and worth? What would change in 1 year? Anything?
GRɅTEFULLY GRɅY INSTA
Check out my Insta Story on my newly created Instagram. Which I plan to ferociously grow and self promote during this time. Its kept separate from my personal as I wanted to say I literally started this from zip, zlich, nada, nothing.
Well…. this is what Im going to find out through the social experiment Gratefully Gray.
Hi guys Charlie Gray coming at you with my latest burst of inspiration. I’m currently in Winnipeg Manitoba and fun fact right now its minus 42 degree outside. No joke, its horrific.
I kind of fell into my current career sitch on a fluke. I was working at a tanning salon many moons ago and I’m not even exaggerating when I say I got fired on the spot because a friend brought me a PIECE OF CAKE. Like sue me, a girls gotta eat. I’m over it, honestly I think its hilarious and thoroughly enjoy telling people the story but needless to say I’ve choose a new tanning salon to get my glaze on these days! After the “cake incident” My dad took pity on me and offered I come work for him as a financial controller for several of his businesses. It was fine, it IS fine. It pays the bills and I work with some pretty rad people.
Is it my passion?
Do I get to eat cake on the reg? Sure, but just not vibing it yah know?
After 4 years in this industry and coming to a cooperate office day in and day out I’ve decided to jazz things up a bit and add a fun little twist into the mix.
I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME TO THE WORLD WITH AS MUCH SUSPENSE AS KYLE JENNER PREGNANCY MY NEW BABY.
(still dying to know the name of the baby) first name Lip, middle name Kit Jenner? probs.
My goal is to use this blog and other forms of social media as fuel for this social experiment as a platform to connect with women from around the world & showcase the MAJOR GODDESS THAT IS THEM.
I’m A Financial worker by trade (for now cause, yawn), aspiring life coach, Author, Certified Law of attraction practitioner, and serial entrepreneur. I plan to document my journey and leanings along the way in hopes of putting together a pool of info to help and inspire other bold relentless babes to live their life to the fullest – without the drag of anxiety. I’m going to be 100% real with you on who I am and just fearlessly self promote me. IN hopes to show you that you can have ZERO experience, ZERO followers, ZERO tolerance for failure and rise to the top though high vibes and dedication.
I really love to tell it how it is, ya know? I guess some might say my interests are a little woo woo and out there. Topics like moon magic, manifestation, law of attraction, Crystals, high vibe livin – not the reefer kind, on the flip side I also deem myself an expert on botox, vegan grubs, COCKTAILS, organic tampons, coffee enemas, and how to get the PERFECT BROW – you know the real important stuff in life.
WHY? Because I feel like they’re real issues that women want to discuss.
Overall I’m a girl on a mission with a passion for creating and just being real with y’all. Oh, & I very much enjoy wine – a crisp Pinot Grigio to be exact, in fact I named my teacup Pomeranian after it.
All around me I see people relentlessly promoting their business or just themselves whenever they get the chance. Whether they are talented or not, they are just EFFING OWNING IT. I’ve come to the realization that this is a bad ass skill set, and you have to be willing to put aside and say f*uck it to that idea of perfection.
You have to be able to overcome that fear and self-self-sabotaging mindset, that crippling anxiety of thinking What if I’m not accepted?
What if this person doesn’t like me or what I stand for?
What if they are a Judy Judgerson?
What if I fail?
Honestly… what a bore, lets just hit snooze on that plz & thx.
You have to turn that what if I fail into what if I succeed? – Im GOING to succeed!
What If they love me? – Even if they dont? WHO EFFING CARES?
What if I could be an inspiration to others and help even ONE PERSON see their self-worth?
What if I make it? – YOU WILL
All of those negative emotions are detrimental to getting our self and out work seen or out there. It can be amazing, you could be incredibly talented.
But in this day in age, if you don’t share it, or relentlessly self-promote…. Sad truth of the matter is, nobody cares. You don’t have to be the greatest at what you do, you don’t even need to be top 10, but you do need to bring the heat, spice it up. Let passion fuel. If you put what you got out there, and promote it with passion. People see you, people see it, and people will want it, they will want what you got. whether its good or not. Guarantee.
This is the social experiment I’m going to conduct over the 365 days – GOD what a commitment. Its about putting yourself out there into the world. Allowing yourself to be seen and going after whatever it is that you want and promoting whatever it is that you do. Even if you do nothing. Do it boldy, do it fearlessly, do what makes you vibe.

“DO. THE. WORK. EVERY DAY, YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING YOU DON’T WANT TO DO. EVERY DAY. CHALLENGE YOURSELF TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE, PUSH PAST THE APATHY AND LAZINESS AND FEAR. OTHERWISE, THE NEXT DAY YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TWO THINGS YOU DON’T WANT TO DO, THEN THREE AND FOUR AND FIVE, AND PRETTY SOON, YOU CAN’T EVEN GET BACK TO THE FIRST THING. AND THEN ALL YOU CAN DO IS BEAT YOURSELF UP FOR THE MESS YOU’VE CREATED, AND NOW YOU’VE GOT A MENTAL BARRIER TO GO ALONG WITH THE PHYSICAL BARRIERS.”

“PEOPLE WHO START AT THE TOP NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY MISSED AT THE BOTTOM. THE GUY WHO STARTED BY SORTING THE MAIL, OR CLEANING THE RESTAURANT LATE AT NIGHT, OR FIXING THE EQUIPMENT AT THE GYM, THAT’S THE GUY WHO KNOWS HOW THINGS GET DONE. AFTER HE’S EVENTUALLY WORKED HIS WAY UP THROUGH THE RANKS, HE KNOWS HOW EVERYTHING WORKS, WHY IT WORKS, WHAT TO DO WHEN IT STOPS WORKING. THAT’S THE GUY WHO WILL HAVE LONGEVITY AND VALUE AND IMPACT, BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT IT TOOK TO GET TO THE TOP. YOU CAN’T CLAIM YOU RAN A MARATHON IF YOU STARTED AT THE SEVENTEENTH MILE.”

I am fortunate enough to work alongside some amazingly gifted, talented, creative, innovated people who are not putting themselves out there, who arnt self promoting. Honestly no one gives a shit about about them, TRUTH HURTS GUYS. You gotta deal.
I also know a few people who aren’t extraordinarily talented in any which way shape or form, but they are constantly obnoxiously self-promoting, overly confident and suffocating the world with all that they are and the world loves them for it!
I need to work on getting out of my own way, getting past my own demons and self-mongering thoughts. I need to put myself out there, on the leading edge creativity & self set that fire under my own ass.
Whether I’m good or not I’m going to try my best and self-promote me. Pull up the bootstraps and go for gold. The goal of this projects or experiment or whatever you want to call it, is for me to overcome some insecurities. Feeling insecure of what others think of me, feeling awkward talking about things that interest me in front of people who are of greater statue, feeling vulnerable and not worthy of success or being ashamed of who I am in comparison to others around me, overcome the FEAR of failure and untimely come out of this having learnt a little something about myself, a stronger, wiser, and more developed bad ass bitch than before & encouraging others to do the same.
I see people doing this all the time weather they are talent or not, whether they are also awkward and embarrassed I gotta give them props because at least they are out there doing it.
Im not. I wasnt.
People know their names and not many people know mine. (YET)
People know what their passions are and are fearlessly going full force pursuing them, constantly working towards their goals and stopping at nothing to achieve them. I’m not doing that? I’m not being shameless in my self promotion.
WAKE THE F UP CHARLIE.
Oh but that’s going to change! The time to take action is NOW to take life by the lady balls! Anything is possible with the right mindset.
I’m going to be posting on all my social media religiously – twitter, Instagram (Instagram stories are my JAM) posts on the blog, uploading YouTube content weekly. Im keeping my initial starting points low so instead of getting overwhelmed and quitting and I can inspired and build momentum.
I’m just starting out I have NO IDEA how to create a website, how to blog, up to even upload and edit a video.I’m a single gal, with a mortgage and payments, working a 9-5 office corporate job to pay the bills. Living paycheck to paycheck. There are AMPLE excuses I could give myself right now, thousands of reasons I could fail.
But am I going to let that stop me? HELL NO, cause there are also thousands of reasons I could succeed. I could inspire, I could make change in this world…. and bitch, IM GONNA.
What if I believed in myself more than anything else in this world? More than gravity. More then that girl in my middle school talent show who thought she was the next B-spears?
Are you being fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire? If not, what’s stopping you from becoming the best version of yourself? Would love to hear from you.
Now toodeloo, I gotta get my ass in gear here.
