People take risks to make something better or to survive. For example you can take a risk to go hunting or you can be scared and starve to death. Also in the book Brian took a risk by crashing the plane in the water because it couldn't of worked but it did.
People take risk to change their life and make a difference in themselves. In the book Hatchet Brian has to take risk by when he had to use his hatchet to break into the crashed plane to get his hand book. He later succeeded and got the book.
People have to take risks in order to survive and that's what Brian did. He took many risks such as trying to fly the plane, going into the woods to hunt etc. in order to survive. The risk that he took to swim underwater and into the plane to save the emergency pack got him off of the island. If Brian hadn't taken risks he wouldn't have survived in the Canadian wilderness by himself for 2 months. It's the same thing in the real world, you need to take risks to evolve and survive. There are many risks that are taken that without the world wouldn't be the same. Some examples are the phone, space advancements, and other technological inventions. All in all you need to take risks.
People take risks because they believe in themselves and are looking for a good outcome. Because of the good outcome, people are willing to sacrifice themselves it. Sometimes people’s lives aren’t going the way they would like them to go they seek for a better future. One way to get a better life is to take risks. When taking risks you know if you succeed there is a positive effect, and if you fail there is a severe punishment. For example, after the tornado when part of the plane was sticking out of the water, Brian remembers that there was emergency pack inside the plane. In this scenario, he realizes that if he manages to swim inside the plane and grab the emergency pack it would make it a lot easier to survive. However, Brian understands that he could get stuck in the plane underwater and die.
People take risks because otherwise there is no way to improve or get anything done. Say you are hungry and want to eat an apple, but are afraid you might eat the seeds or choke on a bite. You would have to take a risk and eat the apple or you would just get hungrier and hungrier. By not taking a risk you are taking one in and of itself. This is why Brian took risks. He knew that if he didn't, it would mean a worse outcome than the worst case scenario. It is better to die brave than a coward.
People take risks because it helps them to achieve a goal. In the book Hatchet, Brian has to take a risk by diving into the water to try to get the survival kit out of the crashed plane. He has to use his hatchet to break open the plane to get the kit. This is a risk because he could have drowned and he took that risk because he needed that survival kit. He succeeded in getting the kit from the plane and that is why he took that risk.
A challenge is considered to be a difficult task. When you are confronted with a challenge most likely you will resist the temptation to do the task. Other people who have character traits such as, perseverance, hope, courage, and bravery have the urge to do and survive a challenge. Perseverance is a key role to survive any type of challenge; Perseverance is the ability and self-control that pushes you through challenges. When you have perseverance you will use your mind and body to overcome the challenge. Hope and Courage also play a large role in overcoming a challenge. You need hope when you are in a challenge because you can be optimistic about what's yet to come. Hope also raises your spirits when things are still bad, you can think that things are going to be alright. Courage is needed when you face a challenge; when a challenge is given to you the first thing you need is to accept the challenge and that takes courage. Bravery plays a vast role in challenges, for example; bravery ties up all of the traits that have, for example, When you come face to face with a challenge you have to be brave and accept the challenge yet, fight through the challenge and conquer what you thought was difficult and problematic.
Sorry, this response was for question number 2
People take risks in order to get through a tough challenge. Brian from the book "Hatchet" Had to eat on what was around him. He had never been in a situation like this because he had only lived in a city. When a bad storm hit the island all the animals on the island were gone so he took a risk to go out to the plane and use his hatchet to get into the plane and get the survival kit for him to survive on the island until someone finds him.
People take risks for many reasons. One main reason why is for survival. Brian had to search for his own food and it proved to be risky. For example, Brian searched for raspberries and he came upon a bear. Brian got really scared and ran back to his shelter. Also to recover the emergency pack from the sunken plane, he had to swim underwater to enter the plane. Sometimes taking risks was the only choice Brian had.
People take risks because of problems that come to face them or to excite themselves
People take risks because taking risks is how you get things done and improve your situation. If you don't take risks, whatever situation you are in won't get better. If nobody took risks, then nothing many devices and things we have today may not be here. For example, let's say that the Wright brothers did not take the risk of trying to fly. If that happened, we may not have had planes. This is why taking risks is essential to getting things done and improving a situation.
People are willing to take risks for many different reasons. Some people take risks to prove or show something. Sometimes they take risks because there is something important that they are trying to get or do to help someone or something important to them. In the book, Wrinkle in Time, the main character, Meg, has to take a risk to save her father and an even bigger risk to save her brother. She took a risk because she was going into an unknown situation on a different planet that could have killed her. She was scared, but took the risk to save people that she loved.
People take risks in order to achieve a goal. People take big risks and small ones. Just like people have big goals and snall ones. Whether it be a risk to survive like Brian did when he went into the plane to get the survival kit. Or a risk that we take daily such as eating, when we could choke on most foods.
Taking a risk might seem scary, but doing so can impact you in many different ways. Risks can show you that you can do things that you never even imagined. For example, in the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, Brian takes an unthinkable amount of risks. The first risk that Brian takes is when the pilot has a heart attack. Brian takes a risk by getting into the pilot's seat and attempting to fly the plane from the knowledge he gained when watching the pilot fly. Brian managed to fly the plane for over an hour before crash landing into a lake. If Brian did not take the risk of flying the plane, he would have crash landed into the forest, not the lake. By taking a risk, Brian saved his life.
You have to take risks to live life. Without taking risks you will not survive. If mankind did not take risks then we would have nothing today. What if we didn't send a man to the moon? Then we would have no space station. Brian from Hatchet took a major risk by landing the plane in the lake. If he didn't land the plane in water, then he would have blown up. It's good to take the risks because without risks the world would not have progressed as far as it has today.
People take risks because The *the out come could be life changing. Brian took a huge risk by going into the almost fully submerged plane. He took this risk not knowing what would happen and if it would work.
People take risks to change something or to help someone else. They want to help someone out of a problem, so they put themselves at risk to help the other person. Brian helped his mom by not telling his dad about The Secret, because it would have changed everything. Even though he didn't know he was helping her, it made things easier for his dad and mom. (pg.181) To change something people want to create something new, and to do so, they have to dump everything they had. Brian took a risk here, because he wanted to change his situation. He was stuck with no water or food, and knew that he could not survive for more than 3 days without water. So, Brian went down to the lake, not knowing if the water was clean or not, and drank some. (pg. 40-42) People also take risks to improve their situation. This adds on to wanting to change something, because they do something that can get them into a better situation, but they risk everything. This is like when the Pilot had a heart attack and Brian took a risk by trying to fly the plane when he had never flown a plane before - he could have lost everything - but he still tried. (pg.15-28) This is like when Brian was picking raspberries, and a bear came. He freaked out and ran, then realized if he did not go back to the bush where the bear was, he would have to starve that night. So, Brian went back to the bush collected and more berries and realized the bear hat left. Brian risked everything going back to that bush, because when he went back to the bush, he had no idea that the bear had left - and would have put himself in danger if it hadn't. (pg. 69-73)
People take risks for many reasons one of them being that good can come out of them but sometimes not just good can happen sometimes if you take a risk it can be live saving and one risk that changed the book was when he decides to land on the edge of the water not knowing if he would make it out alive. Another reason people take risks is because you can change something that isn't right or needs to be changed with a risk for example Brian took a risk by trying to fly the plane until ran out of gas and had to find a landing spot in water. If he wouldn't have risked landing in the water he probably would have died. I also agree with the example Natalie gave where Brian took a risk by drinking the water because he knew he would die without water and the risk was he drank the lake water not knowing if it was clean or not yet he did take the risk which was very beneficial. The last reason why people take risks is because people can find out things they never could imagined of doing for example Brian took a risk by flying the plane which never would have imagined could have done but he did and crash landed safely so Brian could make it out and survive.
People take risks to achieve fame or survival. Once on tv I saw a guy tight rope from one tower to another. he was taking a huge risk because if he fell, he would die, but if he made it he would be famous. Also, people take risks to survive . In the story, Brian was taking a risk by trying to land the plane, in order to survive.
Taking a risk is apart of life. Many people take risks but never realize they are actually taking one. For example when Brian decides on where he wants to stay and sleep he doesn't know if this place is safe or not. He also doesn't know if this gives him the greatest chance of survival. He may not realize it but this is probably the biggest risk he will take. Another example is when he is spear fishing he doesn't know if this will work. He doesn't know if he doesn't get any fish that he might die and it might be his only source of food. This is another big risk.
People take risks for many reasons. One reason people take risks is to improve on a situation. An example of this can be found on page 119. Brian obviously had food that he could easily collect like the "gut" cherries and raspberries, but to survive, he needed and wanted more than that. So Brian made a fish spear. Whenever Brian tried to lunge the spear at a fish, he was always too slow. So Brian decided to make a bow and arrow. After a few tries, Brian had learned from his mistakes and caught a fish by remembering that water refracts and bends light. That meant that the fish were never where they appeared to be, so he would have to aim lower for them. Another reason people take risks is because it may be the only way to achieve. An example of this can be found on pages 25-28. After the pilot had the heart attack, Brian started to have many doubts about still flying, like how the engine might run out, how he was going way off route, and just the fact that he had no idea where he was. Brian decided that the only thing he could do was try to land the plane, but the only clearings were on lakes. After Brian found a lake that he could try to land on, he crashed and got out of the plane, but if he didn't take that risk, he probably wouldn't have been able to survive. The last reason why people take risks is because it helps you grow and gives you an opportunity to learn from your mistakes in the past. An example of this can be found on pages 82-87. Brian needed a fire to keep away the mosquitos, have light during night, and to stay warm. Brian found out that by hitting his hatchet against the stone wall of the cave, he could create sparks. To make a fire, he needed the sparks of fire, fuel, and oxygen. At first, he thought he could make a fire by putting dried grass by the wall and let the sparks of fire rain down on the the grass, but that didn't work. Then he remembered about how he had money in his pocket, so he ripped it up and did the same thing as the grass, but that didn't work either. Then he cut strips of dry bark and let the sparks rain over that. On his third try, he remembered that he needed oxygen so he blew on the bark and made a fire. These are all examples of Brian taking risks for survival in the book Hatchet (by Gary Paulsen) because he was in a do or die situation.
people take risks in order to accomplish something difficult or if they have no other option. For example when Brian Crashed the plane into the lake. It was his only option and he took a risk in order for him to survive. A risk is sort of a last option people take risks when all else fails and they need to take a risk to survive Another example is when Brian needed to check out the sunken plane. he could of died but he took a risk to go and look at it. Lucky for him he found something important
People take risks to step outside their comfort zones. They want to experience something new and unusual. They want to do something that they normally don't do, and for their pleasure. Sometimes people don't have a choice, and they have to take risks to survive.
People take risks to survive. If we didn't take risks we would be different people. In Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, Brian takes an awful amount of risks. He drinks lake water he doesn't know is clean, he eats berries with a risk of poisoning himself, and he eats turtle eggs with a chance of getting sick. He does all these things in order to survive.
People take risks to try new things. They want to try something new that they might be capable of doing. If we didn't take risks we wouldn't know what we are capable of doing. People also take risks for survival. In the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, Brian takes many new risks. For example, he eates raw turtle eggs when he is hungry even though he has a chance of getting sick.
Everyone will take a risk eventually in their life, whether it's smart or it's just plain stupid. Like in the book when Brian drank from the lake he didn't think it would be very sanitary but he knew he had to get hydrated (of course it didn't end to good when he did but whatever) and STAY ALIVE! Another example is when Brian found the rasberries and that bear was right there, he ran from it (never do that people) but then he stopped and thought it through and walked right back to the bush because he knew that there would be consequences if he didn't. Taking risks is just a part of life, it makes a person stronger, braver, and smarter, plus you learn from them whether a persons choice failed and didn't help them at all or changed their whole point of view for things! People take risks for many reasons, maybe someone feels there isn't another choice, or someone wants or needs something, a person will do what it takes to get what they want. Ya gotta take risks in life to be a stronger person and a stronger you!!!
People take risks to make a difference in their lives. One example is that after the pilots heart attack, Brian took the risk to fly the plane into the water and that made a difference in his life because he could've died but he ended up staying alive because of that risk.
People take risks for many reasons. One reason is for survival. For example when Brian caught a bird to eat. He did not know if he properly prepared the bird so it was safe to eat. But he ate it because he needed to take a risk in order to survive. Another reason why people take risks is to step out of their comfort zone. Before his experience living in the wild Brian didn't know how to do half of the things he did. For example he had never fished without a fishing pole nor was he comfortable with doing it. In order for him to be able to catch the fish he would have to take a risk and try catching it with his bow and arrow. If he wouldn't have taken risks he wouldn't have survived.
People take risks for many reasons. One reason is to make something better. For example, Brian took a risk in going farther out into the woods where he couldn't see the lake that well to get more and better wood for his fire and he ended up having fire woods worth of 2-3 days and the different wood made the fire last longer which made his situation better so he could focus on other things for 2-3 days. Another reason on why people take risks is for survival. When Brian caught the foolbird, he had no idea how to cook it.But he had to eat something so he made a educated guess on how to cook the bird in order to survive. One last reason why people take risks is to step out of the comfort zone. For example, when Brian needed to find something other than berries to eat, he discovered fish but, he never went fishing nor did he know how to catch one so he went out of his comfort zone and made the bow and arrow and the spear to catch them. Also, when the pilot died and the plane started to crash, Brian stepped out of his comfort zone to fly the plane to a safe place so that he wouldnt die. Without taking risks, Brian would have never survived.
If you want too get anywhere you sometimes have to work hard and take risks. Risks are a part of working hard work or else you won't get anywhere, you will just be that guy that everyone else is nobody special. You also need to take a risk to get to the next level.
People take risks because they want or need to change their lifestyle. In the story Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen, Brian took risks because he needed to survive, but also he wanted to make surviving in an alternative environment easy. Brian knew what he had from the beginning of the crash was not sufficient for survival in the wilderness. Brain needed to change in order to create a suitable environment for his supply of food, water, access to shelter, access to warmth and light from a fire. Brian needed those commodities to remain alive until he was saved. One distinct example of a risk Brian took to get an essential item was when Brian was so thirsty he drank from the lake. The water could have been so dangerous to drink that it killed him! But he needed the water. Brian thought, “A sip, he thought, still worrying about the lake water-- I’ll just take a sip.” This tells me that Brian was reluctant to drink the water, but he was desperate enough he took the risk by drinking unsafe water because he needed to survive. Although most his risks were necessities, some Brian wanted to change. One example that stood out to me was when Brian had trouble with his food source. In the text it states, “Gut cherries were food, but tricky to eat. He needed something better,” After this, Brian ventures into the dangerous forest to find better berries. This part of the story shows me that even though he had a food source he wanted more. He took a risk and traveled through the dangerous forest on the hunt for better food.
People take risks because they want to try something new and that is one of the biggest reasons why people succeed in life. Taking a risk may be like making a new company which could earn you millions or even billions of dollars, or it could go the complete opposite where you have to try try and try again.
People take risks to experience new things. They want to take risks because there could be an obstacle that is put in their path and is blocking them from finding something new or that you want to take a challenge and step out of your comfort zone. Something that came up a lot in Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen is a life or death situation and you need to do something risky in order to survive. Brian thought that he was going to die out in the wild but when he took the risk to get water even though it was contaminated, he took that risk because he knew something good would come out of it. As he went through his time in the forest he found new ways to help him. He took the risk of making fire and was able to cook his food. He took the risk of creating new ways of finding food like hunting with a spear and bow and arrow.The most important reason why people take risks is because it makes you stronger. It teaches you important lessons about life and hard work because you can't get anywhere without determination. When the tornado came in, Brian thought that was it and he will never survive because the storm took everything away from him. But then he thought " But there is a difference now, he thought-there really is a difference. I might be hit but I'm not done. When the light comes I'll start to rebuild. I still have the hatchet and that's all I had in the first place ( page 147)." With all the strength he had, he thought about the survival pack so he went to the plane that was almost fully submerged under water and he risked his life to get it because he knew it would help him in so many ways. People take risks to change their way of life.
People take risks for new doors to open. If people wouldn't take risks it would just be there boring lives without opportunities rising. Being open consists of trying something new and that is an example of taking risks. In Hatchet Brian took a risk trying those berries even though they might have been poisons he tried, he could have died but instead it helped him succeed. Some people are scared to take risks and stay on the easy road, but that doesn't make you so successful in life because you should be trying new things. You know you are on the right path if you have to make life changing decisions.
Taking a risk is a way for you to try new things, even though some of them may be scary. When you take a risk, you don't know if the outcome will be good or bad. In the book Hatchet, Brian took a risk by trying to protect his turtle eggs, as they were a very important food source for him. The outcome was bad, and the skunk sprayed him. But when Brian tried to make the fish spear, the outcome was good, and he got a very good food source from that. People take risks because the outcome could be very very good, like with the fish spear, so they decide to take the chance.
People take risks to extend their comfort zone. There are risks that you will take to save your life or risks that you will take for yourself, but either way it makes you do something that you never thought you would have to or want to do.
People take risks for the ones they love, for the greater good, and to earn something. Less importantly, people can take risks to get attention. For example, in the Hatchet Brain takes two different risks. He goes in the plane towards the end of the book. He does this to collect the survival pack and hopefully find 'treasures' to help him survive, i.e., food, sleeping bag, weapons, etc. He does this earn something. Also he accidentally dropped his hatchet into the lake and had to swim down to get it and he tried twice. His second try he almost died. He decided that it was worth the risk. It had gotten him through the entire book.
People take risks, because without them no doors will open into their future. 100% of the risks you don't take are not going to happen, or in other words they won't make more opportunities on the path of life for you. Sometimes risks can be scary, but the more you push yourself outside of your comfort zone with them, the more chance that you can exile and expand your range of comfort. In the book, Hatchet, Brian, the main character, had to take lots of risks, because just maybe without those risks, he would not have been able to survive. For example if hadn't tried to start a fire with the wood, he could have been cold and maybe even froze to death. Risks taking can sometimes be the answer to life's problems. In the book, Brian had to just jump out there and take risks day in and day out, because he knew his life depended on it. Risks can be hard, but they make all the difference.
People take risks either because they have to or because they believe that there is something worth the risk. In Hatchet by Gary Paulsen Brian is forced to take risks to survive. For example when the plane crashes Brian is forced to get food or else he would die.
There are many different reasons people take risks, whether necessary or not. In the book "hatchet" Brian had to take many different risks for the sake of his survival. From eating foods that may not have been completely safe and or clean, to diving to the bottom of the lake to retrieve his hatchet, and taking control of the plane, after the pilot had a heart attack. They all had a common theme, it was regarding his safety and survival in the woods. These were classified as risks because he was no granted a positive outcome. Brain chose to take these risks because if there were to be a good result, then the outcome will be greater than taking no risk at all. In conclusion people take risks, in hopes of achieving more positive and successful outcomes
Each and every day humans take risks, even when not realizing it. The word "Risk" means something different to everybody. A risk to one might mean doing something with the chance of possible injury. A risk to another might mean losing a large or even a small sum of money. To me, a risk is simply doing something you aren't used to doing. For example, in the book Hatchet, Brian has to do many things that he isn't used to doing. He is stranded out in the wild, with little to no food. But, that does not stop him. He takes many risks to do all he can to get food. When he had the idea to eat the eggs that he found, there was major risk in that. He had never done that before. But, it was possibly a life or death situation, and he did what he had to do. In conclusion, people take risks to do things they haven’t done before.
People take risks to survive and achieve what they want. In the book Hatchet, Brian has to take risks in order to survive in the Canadian wilderness.
People take risks to discover and learn and in some cases to survive. When people take a risk they are usually trying something they have never done before and most of the time people don't like taking risks for fear of stepping out of their comfort zone. For you, taking a risk might mean serious injury or punishment or it might mean something as simple as a terrible grade on a test. Either way after taking the risk you will know something new and be able to learn from your mistakes. So if people in the modern world didn't take risks by inventing new electronics or robots we would still be hanging around in caves and be called cavemen. In other words, taking risks shapes our world and our lives which is why we take them.
Taking risks also shapes the 54 days that Brian spent in the Canadian wilderness. If Brian hadn't taken all the risks that he took all the pilot would've found was Brian's body. But he stepped out of his comfort zone and took the risks to discover, learn, and survive. The first risk he took was trying to land the plane in the lake (page 26-28)instead of freaking out completely and waiting to see what would happen; he would've died then. The second pretty important risk he took was drinking water from the lake (page 41-42) when he did not know how sanitary the water was. He took that risk to survive and to discover if the water was drinkable. At first he was very iffy about trying the water which makes the fact that he took the risk, even more important. The most important risks he took all had something to do with food because more than once Brian mentioned, "Food was simply everything." (page 122). Eating the raw turtle eggs (page 95-96) was a big risk because he had never done it before and could not know if they would make him sick. But he had to take the risk to survive and discover and he took it, he survived, and he discovered something new all by stepping out of his comfort zone.
In conclusion everyday people and Brian in the book called "Hatchet" take risks to learn, discover, and to survive.
People take risks because of its a part of life, if you don't take risks, you wouldn't be finding new things and new ways to live your life. In the book hatchet for example when the pilot had a heart attack he didn't start to give he tried to land the plane the best he could. When Brian landed the plane in the wilderness he tried his hardest and took many risks to survive he found food learned how to start fires and catch fish. If Brian never took any of those risks, he would not survive.
The reason why people take risks is to find new possibilities and try to make the best of their life
People take risks because they have to in life, whether it is achieving goal, surviving in the wilderness, or even as simple as raising your hand in class. In the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen Brian is forced to take risks all the time in order to survive in his environment. One prime example of Brian taking a risk is when he was in the plane and his pilot had a heart attack. He did not just lay down give up and say this is it I am gonna die. He took the challenge and did the best he could to land the plane into the lake. He had to take risks through out the book to achieve survival.
People take risks because it is a part of living. If you don't take risks you don't achieve anything.
People take risks for many different reasons. Some people take risks because if they don't, they won't be able to survive. People also take risks for the thrill and experience and to achieve some personal goals. Brian took many risks from the time of the plane crash to the moment when he was rescued. He took risks when he needed to go get wood for his fire, not knowing what potentially dangerous animals he would encounter. Also, Brian took a risk when he went to find the survival pack, knowing that the plane could fill up with more water and drown him. The book "Hatchet", is filled with examples of the main character taking risks and overcoming challenges in a "do or die situation".
People take risks to get great rewards. Just like in the book hatchet when Brian takes chances on eating different berries he has never seen before. Some of the berries did not settle well with his stomach but he learned from that and continued on in the wilderness.
People take risks in order to succeed in a way that makes them feel better about themselves. For example in the book hatchet Brian takes a risk of getting killed by a bear just to get a little food because he was so hungry.
People take risks to survive. Brian took a risk to land the plane into the lake. If he crashed into the trees, he would be dead
Risks are a part of life. You need to take on the challenge of them or don't even think about them at all. People take risks to excite their lives and to try to complete something and people are usually more hopeful or happy in the end as a result of the risk. Brian took many risks in the book including crashing the plane in the lake and eating the gut cherries. I said eating the gut cherries because even though they made him sick and hurt him very badly he still took a risk and ate them because he had no food.
Taking risks is constantly shown throughout the book Hatchet. Brian Robeson took essential risks everyday that could result in either good or bad. Risk-taking is simply making a decision and going with it, even though you don't know the outcome or doing something out of your comfort. During the time Brian was in the wilderness, he would have not survived without risks, which therefore concludes to the question: why do people take risks? In the book, he took risks for his mere survival. He would have not lasted the two months he did without risks. Within that time, he had to try new foods and what if they poisoned him? Well it was a risk. He debated on going to get the survival pack in the sunken plane and what if he got stuck? Well it was a risk. And without them he wouldn't have been able to survive. Risks are taken based on the specific situation, and in Brian's case it was a life or death situation. Risks are extremely important in life, and you need them to achieve goals and to try and learn new things.
The reason people take risk is for a reward. Risk are a vital part of life. To succeed in life you must take risks. But you need to pick and choose your risks. For example Brian was forced to take many risks I am sure he did not want to. He chose those risks to survive. In life you will be forced into situations that make you take risks.
People take risks for many different reasons. Some people take risks in order to survive, others take risks to create something new, but most people take risks to change or improve the situation that they are in. Although, sometimes when you take risks they don't always turn out the way you want them to, but is better to try rather then do nothing.
This summer I read the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen. In Hatchet there is a character named Brian Robeson who is a thirteen year old from Hampton, New York. He was copilot on a plane that was going to visit his father. On the way there, the pilot had a heart attack and Brian had to fly the plane by himself without knowing where he is going or whether or not he'll live. The plane then crashes in the Canadian wilderness and Brian has to take many risks. The first risk he took happened even before the plane crashed. He took the risk of flying the plane, he could've crashed the plane as soon as the pilot had the heart attack, but he kept looking for a lake so he would have food and water. That was a risk that he was willing to take because it would increase his chances of survival. Later on, when the plane crashed, he knew that he needed to eat and drink water. Although Brian didn't have and pots to clean the water, he still drank it knowing that his body needed it and that it would give him a better outcome rather than not drinking it. After that, he searched for berries, when he found the berries he ate them not caring if they would make him sick because his body needed food, without taking that risk Brian would've just gotten hungrier. One day Brian remembered that there was a survival pack in the plane, he risked everything to swim out to the crashed plane, when he got to the plane, he started to break a hole in the plane with his Hatchet so he could get in the plane, but then, he dropped his Hatchet and he swam down to the bottom of the lake risking his life so he could get his Hatchet. Brian took all of these risks to help make the situation better, he knew that if he didn't take these risks he wouldn't have survived. Overall, people take risks to change or improve the situation that they are in, without taking risks we wouldn't be the world we are today.
People are constantly taking risks. We as humans take risks for the greater outcome, the knowledge we may obtain and to survive the dangers that we may face in life. For example at the of the Book Hatchet The character Brian remembered something. There was a survival pack in the plane and now that the plane had surfaced he could go retrieve it. But at the risk of the plane sinking back down to the bottom and him getting trapped inside the plane to slowly drown. In this part of the story Brian took a risk for the greater outcome. Brain took the risk of burying the turtle eggs in his shelter knowing that small animals like porcupines could get in . A few days later he awoke to a small animal in his shelter recovering the eggs. Brian attempted to kick the small animal but it turned out it was a skunk and it sprayed him. Brain ran from the shelter his eyes stinging and his mouth imprinted with the smell. that dreadful night Brian gained the knowledge of making sure to keep his food was out of the reach of animals. In the end Brain took many risks to survive.
Commonly, people take risks for the greater good of their lives. If you are in a life or death situation (like Brian in Hatchet), risks are essential for your survival. If Brian had stayed in his shelter for the whole book, there is no possible way he would have survived. He never would have found food, and he never would have found the emergency transmission equipment that ended up getting him saved. Another reason people take risks is to step outside their comfort zone for fun. I don't have an example of Brian doing this, as most of the book was spent in the wilderness taking life saving risks, but I have an example from my life. When I was eight, I was very scared to go on my first roller coaster. I ended up going on, and I love roller coasters because of it. Overall, people take risks for the greater good, or to have more fun in life.
People take risks for many reasons. Some people take risks for fame or glory, others take risks to better their situation, or accomplish a goal. Some people even take risks to survive. Risk taking is simply making a decision and going with it, even though the outcome could be good or bad.
In the book Hatchet, Brian Robeson constantly took risks simply to survive, and to better his situation after his plane crashed into the Canadian Wilderness. Brian would not have survived more than a few days if he had not taken risks. For example, Brian had to eat and drink to survive, so he drank the water from the lake and ate new food like "gut cherries." What if the berries were poisonous, and the water was dirty? It was a risk, but he needed to do it to survive. Just getting wood for a fire was a risk because Brian did not know what dangerous animals he could encouter. But he needed a fire to cook fish and birds that he captured with a bow he made. He also went to get the survival kit from the plane in the water. He could have drowned, but he didn't and it made his situation so much better because of the emergency transmitter in it. It gave a signal, and people came to rescue him. It was a risk that saved him. The book Hatchet is full of so many more big risks too.
To conclude, risk taking is an essential part of life, and you need them to achieve goals, and better situations. From risks you can also learn and do new things.
People take risks for their own good. They either do it because they want to experience/change something, or are in desperate need of a certain object/thing. Taking risks always requires a reason behind it, whether they need or want a change. In the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen, the main character Brian took risks due to his condition in the environment. Also for his own safety and living. For example, when the pilot on the plane had a heart attack, Brian took a risk by taking control of the plane and flying it. "He had to fly it somehow. Had to fly the plane. He had to help himself” (page 15.) This quote tells us that Brian needed to help himself. He needed a change, so he took a risk and fixed the problem by taking control of the plane. The plane could’ve crashed and set on fire, even if he was flying the plane. Another example when Brian took a risk was when he ate berries in the wild that the birds were eating.
They were called “gut cherries”. Even though the birds were eating the berries, Brian might have had an allergic reaction to the berries. The berries also could’ve been poisonous to him, but not the birds. Brian also drank lake water, unfiltered. He needed to take a risk because he was very thirsty. Also, after getting sick from the gut cherries, Brian started to look for a different, tastier food. “They were awful berries, those gut cherries, he thought…...Maybe he could find some better berries.” (page 67 and 68.) Like Brian, there isn’t only one reason why people take risks. It could either be they want to try new things, or need it.
People take risks because humans are known to be very curious and outgoing, letting their minds and thoughts take control. People also take risks to find new, for a example new knowledge, land, and more cultures and ways to live.Without people taking risks we wouldn't know that much that we know now. Instead we would only know the objects and challenges that we can see in front of us. Risks can mean life or death, but others normally leave us with a lesson. Either way taking risks can be good or bad, both ways you are left with good knowledge or a reward. With taking risks you normally are left with a positive change.
There are many different reasons people take risks. Often times people take risks while trying something for the first time. Sometimes taking a risk means something as simple as trying a new food. Other times a risk could be as adventurous as traveling across the wold. Sometimes when people take risks it is a choice but other times it could be between life or death. Another reason people are willing to take a risk is to achieve a goal in life. After taking a risk you will most likely be left with its impact.
People take risks for different reasons. Some of the reasons are that they want to accomplish something or in Hatchet, Brian took risks to survive. For example, Brian had to get the survival pack from the plane in the lake even though he knew he had to take several risks and it was very dangerous for him to try to get it. Brian also took a risk to crash the plane into the lake instead of on the land because he could've crashed but had a hard impact and could potentially have died but if he didnt take the risk he might not have survived anyway
Risk. It is a word we hear a lot in our everyday lives, yet we don't always realize that there are many reasons of why people take risks. One reason is because it is the only way to survive. There are many examples of this throughout the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen. One of them is when Brian decided to fly the plane after the pilot had a heart attack. He did not know how to fly the plane, but knew it was a risk he had to take to survive. He could have just sat there, but he had to fly it in order to survive. Another example of this is when he decides to go and look for food. Something as simple as this is actually a risk. Many things could have happened. For instance, the bear that he saw could have attacked him or he even could have gotten lost in the woods, but he knew that he had to search for food, otherwise he would have not survived.
Though people take risks to survive, people also take risks to make themselves happier, safer, and better. In the book, Brian decides to fix up his shelter to make it more like a home. Believe it or not, this was a huge risk to take. He had to find the right material, construct it correctly, and had to make it convenient. One mess up and he would be without a shelter in the woods. He didn't have to, but he took that risk because he really wanted to have a safer and nicer shelter. In addition, in chapter 14, when he makes a trap for the fish so he does not have to hunt for the fish. He could easily just hunt everyday for the fish, but he thought it would be better to trap the fish and not have to hunt for them. The trap might not have worked, but this is a risk he did to make hunting better for him.
Lastly, people take risks so they can learn and make better decisions in the future. When Brian tried to make the fire, it was a risk he took. He didn't create the fire on his first try. It took him hours and hours and hours. He risked a lot of things like paper, wood, and other useful materials. He had learned from that and finally got the fire going. Though it took him long, he learned from that risk he took.
This book taught me a lot about why people take risks. I never really thought about that question a lot until reading the book. It truly took me on an adventure, and made me think about the risks I take in life.
Taking a risk is making a tough decision. People make decisions all the time in everyday life. Some are very simple on what to where and some can be in a life or death situation. People take risks to get something that they wish for or something they can have. Some people take risk on something they desire others take risk bc it's exciting or for example in Brian's case he took risk everyday and each big decision that he made what decide if he would live for another day. Like when Brian made the decision to go to the plain and get the emergency kit that risk made either Brian would live for more days and survive or not.
Risks are something you have to take your whole life. Taking a risk is going out of your comfort zone. People take risks because they want to or need to and they are hoping for a greater outcome. Taking a risk could be something simple or something that could change your life. In "Hatchet", Brian took risks everyday in order to survive.
People need to take risks if they...
Run out of options or ideas, if they need something very badly, if there is a chance that it could work,to not give up hope/gain hope, or to improve the situation.
people take risks because trying new things, and taking risks are part of life. without risks, no one would ever go out of there comfort zone and become more confident. taking a risk is also doing what you think is right. Without taking risks, you wont get very in life. Brian took a risk, to go out, and find food. If Brian had not done this, he would have starved. taking risks makes us different, and more independent.
People take risk in life to over come things, like when Brian took the risk of trying to land the plane instead of not doing anything and having the plans crash also when he when hunting and got attacked by the moose I think that if people don't take risks in there life that they will never feel the rush in doing new things
People take risks because the benefits out way the negatives. Also When you take on a challenge u can learn and grow from it.
People have to take risks in order to survive. Brian took many risks in order to survive his journey . The risk that he took was flying a plane. If Brian hadn't taken that risk he wouldn't have survived. If you don't take risks it could maybe take your life. If brain didn't take this one risk he probably wouldn't have survived. This is why I think you should take risks.
Everyone takes risks in there lives. We take risks to overcome certain challenges or obstacles that we face everyday. We need risks to try new things,discover stuff about our selfs to become a better person.Brian took risks that were based on life or death. For example crashing into the lake or eating the berries that made him sick. But all those risks added up to him surviving.
People take risk through out all of there life. A risk could be a simple thing or somthing that could be life change. People take risk to go out of the comfort zone and try somthing or like in Brian's case, to survive.
People take risk because they want to be different than other people, if everyone stayed in their comfort zone, everyone would be the same. Brian takes many risks to survive and he goes out of his comfort zone many times
In the book Hatchet, Brian took many risks to increase survival. You should always take risks because the outcome will be better. Risks take you out of your comfort zone and beyond what you know and it stretches your capability in everything. From the smallest thing like going back to get berries when the bear could still be lurking around nearby to the biggest thing such as searching the airplane underwater and finally getting the bag of supplies. These risks helped Brian. If he didn't go back and get berries, he couldn't have eaten that day, which would weaken him. If he hadn't searched the plane, then he wouldn't have been saved by his call on the Emergency Transmitter. All the risks in life and in the book, all payed off in some way. This is why people take risks.
People take risks because they can get something that benefits them or gets them what they want from it. For example brian wanted to land in a lake and he did if he didn't land in the lake he probably would have died. Lastly, In brains case he took a life changing risk, risks can be as simply as testing something out
People take risks because they could benefit from those risks that they take. Like when brian did not want to leave his shelter he had to take a risk by leaving the shelter to find food.
People take risks because of what they expect to achieve. People say risk is proportional to profit. This profit can be something related to emotion. It makes people satisfied and happy. This profit can be a mere sum of money, something extremely valuable.
