Competent people resist change. Why? Because change threatens to make them less competent. And competent people like being competent. That's who they are...I have always been one to take a risk (more times than not) and definitely have had my shares of failures, but through all of this I have reinvented myself and still continue to daily. And as a result, I have learned a lot about myself, what I value, and more than can be mentioned.
This is a huge barrier - how can this one be overcome? Truly, what we know of school would have to change as well as how one moves through their career.
