10 Reasons You’re Retiring in Poverty

In his excellent recording of The Strangest Secret in 1956, Earl Nightingale tracked the fortune of 100 individuals who started bright-eyed and busy-tailed at age 25. These people were all well motivated and eager to be successful.

“By the time they are in their full retirement age, only one will be rich, four will be financially independent, five will still work, and 54 will be broke depending on others for life's necessities.”

These are alarming statistics and justifiably should provoke us to beg the question, “why are 95% of people broke in their retirement years?” Let’s put it another way, “why do 95% of people retire poor?”

They Never Clearly Define Financial Freedom

Most people retire poor simply because they have no clear definition of financial freedom or a concrete financial plan for their life.

They Never Make Freedom an Absolute Must

Many people are too lazy to be productive. If you ask a hundred people how they intend to get rich, most will tell you they would love to win the lottery, marry an Heir (Heiress) or inherit a fortune.

They are Unaware of the Power of Their Subconscious Mind

Similar to a thermostat that controls the temperature of a room, your financial thermostat dictates your financial reality.

They are Surrounded and Influenced by Other Poor People.

There is a common saying that says “birds of a feather flock together.” You can proactively begin today to choose to surround yourself with financially free people.

They Never Confront the Brutal Facts of Their Financial Reality.

To supercharge your pursuit of financial freedom, it is instructive to handle your finances yourself and confront the brutal truth about them.
