Trigger condition always false

I created a Power Automate flow to run when a list item is modified using a condition field and while it seemed to work well when I tested it, as soon as it's rolled out in a real-world scenario it won't (how typical).

As you can see, the flow is meant to run when an item is modified. The flow will get the changes, set a variable and then look at the condition to see if the condition is true (the checkbox in the list item is present).

What I am asking the flow to do is to see if Ready for Approval is checked in the list item. If it is, it's supposed to start an approval

The issue is that when I modify the list item to add the check, the flow returns the condition as false.

What am I missing?

Could you show the output of the trigger after checking "Ready for" checkbox?

This is what I get after the condition:

Is this what you're looking for?

Create a boolean variable and initialize it with the value of the checkbox.  Will you see any errors?
