Many people stick with what they are doing because they think it's as good as it's going to get. After investing several years in a career/job, it can seem overwhelming to branch out. Although not fulfilled, many people stay put because it's comfortable and there's a sense of security.
Is complacency holding you back in any areas of your life?
Living someone else's dream.
Many people stick with what they are doing because a parent said it was a good idea, or they were told they'd make a lot of money, or because there's an element of prestige attached to it.

Whose "best life" are you living?
People often get blocked by the reality that they might not have the education, the experience, the trajectory (the whatever!) of their peers, or friends, or family members. This is the classic "you're not good enough" tape that can play itself over and over in your head.
