  1. I fourth that! Fear is our enemy. Sometimes that fear stems from the environment that we grew up in. That environment is not always our families, it could be school, work or even just the society and culture that we live in. If your told something enough times you begin to believe it.

  2. It’s easier? Time passes quicker than anticipated, and “There’s always tomorrow” becomes tomorrow before they realize it? Giving up when success is elusive? Being conditioned to thinking they aren’t “good enough”? I don’t know.

  3. I think part of it is to do with the way the system works, in the UK the exams go very much towards every child should fit into a square box. From age 6 onwards you are told that if you can’t pass this then you can’t achieve, rather than the fact you just have a different skill set

  4. It depends on the kind of person. I thrive on change and always have. I like to set short term, manageable goals with bigger goals on the horizon. One of my large goals, however, was to become a CIO of a company. When I achieved this, it turned out to be dreadful. I had to readjust and aim in another direction.Some people are content to do the same job their entire life. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just a different mindset.
