Preparation for change is putting one foot in front of the other, making small changes at first. These small changes may include researching what is necessary for success. It might also involve acquiring resources such as books or tools necessary for change, and aligning life in a way that moves towards action. This can include making list of goals, compiling motivational quotes, creating and a dream board. Once preparation is completed and the motivation for change is in place, movement towards action can take place.
