“Not Everything, Not Yet”

The Dark Knight Rises – Batman:”Not everything,not yet” [HD]: http://youtu.be/zXMzHYcNTsU

In arguably one of the most powerful scenes in Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, Selena Kyle urges Batman to leave the city of Gotham behind in order to save himself.

“You’ve given this city everything.” She says.

“Not everything, not yet.” He replies. Bruce Wayne is prepared to give everything to save his city.

Anything worth having in life will cost us something. The greatest things in life cost everything.

There is a price to pay, a sacrifice we all must make to move forward in life.

Whether it is the long hours and long commutes often required of modern professionals or the pain and discomfort of bringing a new life into the world, one thing is certain – sacrifice is part of life.

The good news is: every sacrifice leads to reward.

Hard work and preparation lead to provision and success.

We must ask ourselves, “Are the things I’m living for worth the sacrifices others have made?”

Onward and Upward,

Plot Holes


Those pesky plot holes. You’ll find them everywhere if you look hard enough, even in real life.

What do we do with those things in life that just don’t make sense? Label them, point them out and focus on them?

In fiction, there is something we call the “suspension of disbelief”. It’s what makes professional wrestling so much fun. It’s when we “buy in” to a story and simply enjoy the ride.

I’m choosing today to ignore the plot holes in my life right now and to enjoy the good things and the ride I’m on, no matter how bumpy. The best is yet to come and whether it all makes sense or not, it is an adventure.

If you listened to LYCCYX Episode 1 on Audible or iTunes and hated it, we have good news: we went back and ironed things out a bit. If you loved it, we think you’ll love it even more.

So be sure to refresh your copy or try it for the first time free with your Audible trial or for one credit if you’re a member.

If you find any plot holes, try to think of them as “imagination buffers” where you get to fill in the blanks :-)
