Sometimes we can all learn a lesson from the animal kingdom. A recent viral video of a bear cub attempting to climb a snowy peak (behind its mama) is more than just aww-dorable—it’s pure inspiration!

Okay, okay. So this clip is possible one of the cutest things you’ll ever see. As mama bear climbs a snow-covered slope, her baby traipses behind. As you’d imagine, mama bear slips several time. But the clearly experienced climber manages to make her way up the mountain without too much trouble. Um, round of applause here.

The sweet little baby bear climbs behind its mama, only to slip and slide back down the slope. But that doesn’t stop baby bear. Nope. That little ball of cuteness picks itself back up and climbs again, trying to reach mama bear. And again (and again and again and again…) the bay slides right back down to the bottom.

Hmm. Sounds kind of familiar. Kind of. How many times has your kiddo made an awesome attempt, only to fail? And how many times has your little one picked themselves up and try, try, try again? If the answer to that question is “none,” or, “Without a tantrum?”, it’s time to watch the baby bear video as a family.

Oh, and spoiler alert, baby bear does eventually make it to the top of the mountain!
