“Remember why you started. Don’t give up, find a way.”
The world is full of inspiration, it’s how and when we take it.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, a baby bear that is seen climbing snow covered mountains teaches us an important life lesson – not to give up whatever the circumstances may be.
We could all learn a lesson from this baby bear: Look up & don’t give up. pic.twitter.com/nm0McSYeqY— IM🍑HIM (@ziyatong) November 3, 2018
In the video, that has been taken with the help of a drone, a baby bear is seen climbing snow covered mountains with its mother.
As it starts climbing with the adult bear, there are several moments when it falls down, only to climb again. Just when we start feeling that it will fall down the cliff, it proves us wrong and starts again.
And finally, it manages to reach the top giving us the inspiration we have been looking for.

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!— TD Dorn (@TdTd4046) November 4, 2018
I see it as the mother bear strengthening the cub by making it experience adversity that it will later face alone in life.— Chris LeDrew (@ChrisLeDrew) November 4, 2018

While the video is heartwarming, people are also criticising the video for for being harsh to the baby bear and picturing it through a drone.
Please take this video down. The stone operator harassed and endangered the lives of those bears. The real lesson here is to give wildlife respect, and distance.— Dr. Jacquelyn Gill (@JacquelynGill) November 4, 2018
Ugh same I was like JUST LET HIM LIVE HIS LIFE HE DOESN’T DESERVE THIS— ophelius (@xhemlocke) November 5, 2018
Maybe the lesson is, don’t bother wild animals with drones?— Alison Stine (@AlisonStine) November 4, 2018
