Because people love to force their negativity on others. Man I hate people who do that! That's the one thing that pisses me off, listening to someone who is trying to bring you down so it can give them satisfaction of not changing a damn thing about their shit life.

Sheer laziness, it's the only logical explanation.

People just aren't motivated enough.

It's the wall of fear aka fear of the unknown. There is no guarantee the new life choice will be beneficial and benign so rather than risk we acquiesce. The choices you posted all apply, stars201 though some will be more cogent to our psyche than others.

Because change scares people.
Or it may go against what we have been taught when growing up depending on what that change is.

Second.

This one is most actually a tie between the middle three, in most people lives they like what is comfy.Also people are social creatures meaning most do care what people think.

Because you get so stuck in what's comfortable for you that it is terrifying to think of changing that. If you change something in your life you have no way of knowing it will be actually beneficial for you in the long run, and you just gave up something good to try getting something better. There's always risk involved in changing something major in your life, and that scares people.
