Daily Chinese Proverb: First Step

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Thursday, 10 September 2009
The people over at NiHao Hello posted this Chinese proverb yesterday and I thought I would re-post it as I really liked it. It is somewhat similiar to one I posted recently, 'The mightiest Oaks....'

I like this proverb to remind me that all of our plans, especially the biggest take a long time. They don't happen straight away. I must keep on reminding myself this, becuase it is often easy to be upset you haven't achieved goals that you have set yourself now. The journey to achieving your aspirations, dreams and goals is in taking the first steps with no fear.

Take a moment and think about what you want to achieve. Then take the plunge, take that first step the journey to your dreams.

qiānlǐ zhīháng, shǐyúzú xià
A thousand-mile journey begins with the first step

Variant: Even the longest journey must starts with a small step.
