Do one thing every day that scares you is something one should seriously consider. A valiant example of the same quote can be seen in this video featuring US-based dad Steven Sobel encouraging his 3-year-old son, Ryker, to conquer his fear of water.
In the video, Sobel assures Ryker that he would catch him at the right time and that he had nothing to fear.
"Imma think about it," the adorable kid says halfway through the video. After being motivated some more, Ryker finally musters up the courage to jump into the water.
According to Steven, Ryker now loves to swim and jumps in the water every chance he gets.
Watch the heartwarming moment in the video above.
