Getting ready and becoming motivated to make behavioural change

Getting ready and becoming motivated to make behavioural change starts with a readiness, wellness and a desire to embrace change. All of which can only and will only be considered if the person or persons concern think and accept that there is an issue or something needing to change. There are different schools of thought about the number of stages in the cycle of change. I would like to put forward that it is understanding the difference between stages of change and processes of change that is critical for sustainable moving from pre-contemplation to contemplation stage.
