Though he was just awarded more supplies for completing the task, he proves that he is his most valuable asset. To conclude, in the book Hatchet, Brian, the sole survivor of a plane crash, survives in the Canadian wilderness by himself and learn that he is his most valuable asset. This is the main theme of the story and is strongly shown when he flies and lands the plane, when he makes fire, and when he retrieves the survival pack from the icy depths of the lake.
The first example of why being skillful is so important in cases of resilience in Unbroken can be noticed when once the plane crashes into the ocean, Louie immediately puts his wits into action.

Louie backtracked and thought about the situations that could be thrown at him for each movement he made. He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut.

He uses his hatchet and other items to survive in the wilderness. Brian’s mother drives him to the airport to see his father in the Canadian oil fields. His mom gives him a hatchet as a parting gift; he puts it on his belt and gets on a bush plane. While flying the pilot shows Brian how to use the controls. Suddenly the pilot becomes ill. Brian realizes that he is having a heart attack; he is frightened and doesn’t know what to do.
Brian is very observant and takes time to experience and notice the world around him. Just like one of the survival strategies. Brian was observant in the plane with the pilot. When the pilot was gassy and complained that his chest was "coming apart," Brian remembered that he had seen a man saying and doing the same thing. This observation led him to believe that the pilot was having a heart attack.

Skiing has always put me at ease, I loved the feeling of zooming past trees while the cold, Colorado air hit my face. I have been skiing since I was nine years old, and it has since then become an annual trip. The third skiing trip my family took was when I was eleven, in Telluride, Colorado.

Neither of us were excellent skiers so we had stuck to green and blue trails.
