It’s not about how far you fall, but how high you bounce back – Zig Zigler.
Never, never and never give up – Winston Churchill.
Well, these are two of the most common quotes we have read time and time again to get the required motivation in life. While there are only a few who have actually used them to climb the ladder of success, a tiny bear cub has proved both the sayings right, with an incredible act of his.
In a nail-biting video that is going viral on social media platforms, we can see a mother bear start her journey to the top of a snowy mountain along with her little one. While the mother makes it to the plain above in a few seconds, it was not so easy for the baby, who was yet to develop the skills.
The heartwarming clip clearly shows the cub desperately trying to reach the top but slipping downhill with every effort of his. There also came a moment when the young one was just inches away from his goal only to go all the way down to the waterfall below.
However, no matter how many times he slipped, he did not stop trying. His astonishing will to reach his waiting mother at the top finally saw him make it to the end.

And seeing the baby happily run away with his mother, the Twitterati breathed a sigh of relief.
That’s basically every one of at the moment.

A few minutes I won’t forget any soon.
Wow! That had me on the edge of my seat Storm, I wanted to fast forward but couldn't just incase the outcome wasn't what we all wanted? That's one 'eck of a plucky cub, but I'd put myself in the place of Dad having to go home to Mam having to explain how Jnr. was not with me? 😱

When there is a will, there is a way.
Oh my God – that little bear has marvellous perseverance – natural instinct to scramble after mummy bear but what a task ….👍

A lesson learned.
Look at how the mother bear allowed the cub to struggle and fight until it successfully made it to the top and did not interfere with the process of teaching the cub how to survive and not give in to set backs.
No participation trophy here!
