Follow-Up to my What If Question

So many of you answered my Thread on "What If?". My follow-up question is, what are the three things, that are holding you back from doing the What If scenario you posted about?

For me, it's
  1. ADHD and lack of focus
  2. No clear end goal in mind
  3. Lack of clear prioritization.

    3. There isn't really a third thing, maybe a little too attach to interest in IT Security.

    Basically the things you listed as imagining I had. My bills aren't covered for the next year, I don't have endless energy and I don't have access to any class I want!
