Hi,

Many times people talk about doing things. They have plans to study, work, and make money. However, to achieve greatness takes a lot of time and effort. Most people only talk about it and never take action. This proverb is basically saying that in order to achieve something, you have to take action by simply beginning the process. The single step is basically starting with your action instead of simply saying that you will do it.

Whenever you hear someone repeatedly say they will do something, you can use that opportunity to say, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"
