Pilot Mitch Free writes that learning to fly initially felt like a daunting task, and when his instructor told him he was ready to fly solo, he felt genuine fear. But after landing he writes, "I stepped out with a new sense of accomplishment." Free suggests that flying, like learning any new skill, builds confidence, and it's important to set the example of hard work for those that you mentor. "Regardless of your age or schedule, choose a new skill or talent you want to acquire and pursue it with grit," Free writes.
