Gabriela Humailo, Founder and President of the non-profit I CHOOSE – I AM NOT A VICTIM, Best-Selling Author® and Mindset Coach, Writes About The Value Of Dissolving And Dissipating Imagined Fear.

Gabriela Humailo, Founder and President of the non-profit I CHOOSE – I AM NOT A VICTIM, Inspiring Mindset Coach and Best-Selling Author, delves into the history of the useful but much-overexaggerated emotions of fear and anxiety and helps men and women around the world eliminate imaginary fears that get in the way of their being their best. 

ORLANDO, FL – August 31, 2020 – Gabriela Humailo, Founder and President of the non-profit, I CHOOSE – I AM NOT A VICTIM, and co-author of Think Big, with Brian Tracy, has posted a new article on her website entitled, “When False Emotions Appear Real — Shine A Light On Fear,” in which Gabriela shines the light of truth on an ancient emotion.

Gabriela writes, “Fear is an ancient emotion. It is an emotion that has served and continues to protect humans by causing them to sense when they are being threatened.” She continues elaborating, “In prehistoric times, that meant being chased by lions, tigers, dinosaurs, and other humans out to do them harm.”

“As a species,” says Gabriela, “we have advanced from being chased by animals. However, the emotion of fear remains strong. Contemporary definitions describe fear as: an unpleasant feeling triggered by the perception of danger, real or imagined.” Gabriela emphasizes, “The keyword I want to point out is “perception.” And, far too many humans live fear and anxiety-ridden lives unnecessarily. The truth is that many fears are based on things imagined and not real.”

Gabriela turns her focus to Aristotle and The Ancient Greeks, who she says, “studied fear and had many ideas and explanations for the origins, mechanisms, and outcomes of fear and its close relative, anxiety. In fact,” writes Gabriela, “according to an article I recently came across, Aristotle felt that “fear was the opposite of confidence. To him, the world was reducible to pairs of opposites, (hot and cold, wet and dry). It was also from his school of thought that we associate great men as those who suffer through fear and anxiety. Great men and women are the ones who overcome fear’s effects. The cure for fear was to act in virtuous ways, including being courageous.” The article goes on to say that, “Aristotle did not advocate the pursuit of “fearlessness.” To be fearless was a sign of true “imbalance” of the opposite life pairs discussed earlier. It was considered crazy to not fear the gods and the all-consuming influence they had on the environment.”

As Gabriela points out, “Our emotions are meant to guide us, and the feelings that fear and anxiety cause within are signals that can alert us to something that might be off but might also just be imagined. The only way to find out is to stop and really think about what is causing the feeling.”

About Gabriela

Gabriela Humailo’s purpose is to help women and men who know the feeling of being a victim to change it with one of a victor, through the Power of Choosing. Gabriela shares with them how and what to choose to take control and redesign their life, how to think in order to live a free, happy, harmonious, and fulfilled life, and how to become confident in themselves – for both them and those in their personal and professional life. She also shows you how to begin to (re)discover and (re)construct Your Identity and Values.

Gabriela practiced this way of living through I CHOOSE for more than 45 years, and her family and friends considered her a “rebel” because of this way of building and rebuilding her life, but this choice helped her go forward by smiling through life. This way of thinking gave her the confidence and the right attitude to build and rebuild herself into a happy person and have a free, successful, and fulfilled life, and also helped her to cross over the unhappy moments – inevitable in the journey through life.

Gabriela moved from Europe to the US and opened a non-profit company, I CHOOSE – I AM NOT A VICTIM, because she believes in The Power of Choosing WHO You Want To Be Or Become. Gabriela, as Founder and President, wants this company to become the legacy she began to build and knows that it will be a long journey, but she is dedicated to living the rest of her life for that.

Gabriela learned the “Life as a Volunteer” experience in 1990 from the ROTARY CLUB, Carmaux, France, where she was involved for two years as a translator for humanitarian actions in Romania. What members of the French Club did for those “unknown people” of her country marked her for life!

Gabriela lived and traveled in many countries in Europe, as well as in Nigeria, Africa, influencing the lives of those around her.

Gabriela graduated as a Licensed Economist in Finance, Bank, and Stock Market from Bogdan Voda University, Faculty of Economics Sciences, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. She collaborated for 19 years with ING Life Insurance Romania SA, and 11 years with ING Bank N.V. Amsterdam, Bucharest Branch, as an Owner and Business Manager of an ING Bank Franchise – the first banking franchises from Romania.

During 26 years of entrepreneurial experience, she built six companies in different areas, all starting from nothing, then developed and sold them.

The multiple experiences of working with thousands of people, both employees and business clients, combined the personal skills of coaching, communication, and training of sales agents with the managerial and leadership skills, and formed her as an excellent motivator and inspirational leader, knowing that any business grows through the people that work for it.

Gabriela is certified in Life and Business Coaching, and also is a Coach, Trainer, and Speaker Certified by John C. Maxwell.

She is a Best-Selling Author with Brian Tracy in his new book, THINK BIG, and is a certified member of The National Association of Experts, Writers, and Speakers in the United States.
