A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with a Single Step

One of my favorite quotes is from Lao Tzu, and he said:

千里之行始于足下
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

If you set “I want to be fluent in Chinese Mandarin” as a goal, it can be overwhelming. But if you break down the learning process into little steps, then it will be much more attainable and easier 😀

For example:

  1. I am going to learn 3 characters today.
  2. I am going to learn 5 phrases today.
  3. I am going to record myself speaking Chinese for 1 minute.

Take those baby steps, slowly but consistently, and you will reach your ultimate goal. 加油!

How do you say “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” in Chinese?

千里之行,始於足下

qiān lĭ zhī xíng , shĭ yú zú xià

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
