As a perpetual student pilot, this is one of the things that frightens me the most. I know that I can be susceptible to this kind of thinking. I can look back to several times I drove through worsening winter conditions, telling myself on a continuous loop, "I made it this far, I can go a little farther. I must be almost through this. It would be worse to turn back. I need to get where I'm going."
