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. Highlighted in the text: "Louie knew he had to get Phil 's bleeding stopped, but if he went to him, the raft would be lost and all of them would perish. He swam for the raft" (Hillenbrand 3). 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.
Salva gets water and does housework for the old woman he considers family. In the text it states “He worked hard so she would not send him away.” (18) Salva worked hard, to have a place to stay during the fighting. Salva helped with the boats so he could get over the river faster. The text explains “It was hard work running back and forth between those cutting and those weaving.” (43) This means Salva is an achiever because instead of not helping because he was a child, he helped all the adults and got reeds. Salva leads a group of thousands of boys to Kenya with his dedication and determination.
But these feelings and emotions are shown on his way home, which also included how he decided to help his crew. Odysseus decided to help out his crew by thinking of creative ideas to get rid of Polyphemus, and simply by rescuing most of his crew. Without the support of Odysseus, many of his crew would have died and not have made it back home. But instead, readers witness Odysseus getting creative and coming up with an intention to hurt Polyphemus and to eventually blind him in order to break out: “So we seized our stake with its fiery tip and bored it round and round in the giants eye till blood came boiling up around that smoking shaft and the hot blast signed his brow and eyelids round the core and the broiling eyeball burst-.”(9.433-437)
The first obstacles that they face was first when they did not have any food. The men were running on fumes for both food and water, and they felt like there was nothing for them to do. This was until Louie noticed a bird flying, got an idea, and slowly inched his hand closer and closer to the bird. All in one go, Louie closed his hand, and while the bird is pecking he closed his hand and then snapped the bird 's neck. In order to get the meat from the bird, Louie
The frames have a common theme of hesitation and despair, the idea of these frames is to show that Hiccup doesn’t want to let his village and his father down, but at the same time, doesn’t want to kill something. He can’t bring himself to hurt him. This movie made me rethink the techniques of changing from scene to scene, now every time I watch a movie I name the clips. Hiccup caused Toothless to lose a part of his tail and Toothless caused Hiccup to lose his leg, this part came back full circle. Hiccup proved to his father and his friends that you don’t have to be strong to make something incredible happen.
Avoid demotivation or any negative psychological feeling amongst the individuals in the teams. Recommendation: Although Varsity Crew had top eight rowers, they lost to Junior Varsity crew mainly due to lack of trust between team members which is a critical parameter for success in this sport. Ideally, Coach P should have immediately got into actions on Psychological dimensions when he realized the psychological difference in the two teams, i.e. when he read the different tones of email messages. Because it was at this moment, he understood the main issue with the Vs.
The rule of the conch was the first rule established by the assembly. Breaking the conch led to the end of civility on the island. People’s voices can no longer heard. Jack’s philosophy of having no rules is ultimately what kills Piggy and Simon.The boys would continue to harm others because without rules, they cannot be controlled. Their deaths give Jack more power and therefore
He reviews this valuable lesson by not giving up his life jacket when they realize that they are three short. He waits until Dale Harding, Billy Bibbit and George Sorenson, the captain, finally volunteer to sacrifice themselves for their friends. The patients take these new characteristics with them; consequently, the boys who left for the fishing trip return to the ward as strong men. Once the patients are under Nurse Ratched’s control again, McMurphy puts himself at risk by attacking an orderly to protect the men’s dignity and respect George’s germaphobia.
Another example is when Odysseus, and his men are yet again on the threshold of demise by a whirlpool Heavyweight named Charybdis. Odysseus motivates his men once again that if they want to live, they have to keep rowing to escape Charybdis (783, book 12). This portrays Odysseus’ leadership by showing his men pep talk for survival. This more deeply illustrates Odysseus trait of leadership because he and his crew do not want to die
The American politician, and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt once said “‘People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built’”. In Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Louis Zamperini, exemplifies this quote because he grew with life’s experiences. In fact life put Louis in a Japanese P.O.W camp where he grew into a new man. Miraculously, Louis somehow always survived the tough situations life threw at him, and it was this skillfulness that got him through it.
While the men were on the raft Louie said, “Within a few days of the crash, Louie began peppering the other two with questions on every conceivable subject…They told and retold stories…Phil sang church hymns; Louie taught the other two the lyrics to “White Christmas”(page 152-153). This excerpt from Unbroken shows how Louie’s perseverance to survive had kept the majority of what remained of his crew members sane and hopeful. This proves my thesis statement because it proves that Louie was a very diligent man who had believed that he had a long life ahead of him if he were to just overcome these hard and extremely difficult times. To conclude, Louie had the tenacity and had intended to keep living
These came in the form of the stories that Lightfang would tell. Typically, anything that passed through Lightfang’s maw meant trouble, but these were different. These stories weren’t about a drunken sailor fighting off crabs for ale, but rather of heroic humans protecting the weak and earning the praise of his peers, which was unheard of Jag’s hectic life. Slowly these stories shaped Jag, and when the time finally came that the Captain passed away, Jag knew what he wanted to do with his life. He would become a
