Therefore, nature gave him fear so that he knew it's time to escape if he faced such animals. Not only the animals that caused fear to ancient man. All other nature dangers and even the danger from the fellow human were also the threat that caused fear. We inherit fear and become acquaint with it in our modern lives. But instead of fear of danger, now we fear of failure. Fear of mental danger is more severe than the fear of physical dangers in modern day human.

In addition, we have been taught to have fear since our childhood.
