What's Preventing Most People from Financial Freedom (Part 1)

Part I - Introduction
Interesting Statistics

I had done some research on the statistics of how many percent of people would achieve financial freedom at the age of retirement in this planet... And here is one of the earliest published results, in the richest country at it time during mid 1900, by Earl Nightingale, in his work -"The Strangest Secret":-
"Some years ago, the late Nobel prize-winning Dr. Albert Schweitzer was asked by a reporter, "Doctor, what's wrong with men today?" The great doctor was silent a moment, and then he said, "Men simply don't think!"
It's about this that I want to talk with you. We live today in a golden age. This is an era that humanity has looked forward to, dreamed of, and worked toward for thousands of years. We live in the richest era that ever existed on the face of the earth ... a land of abundant opportunity for everyone.
However, if you take 100 individuals who start even at the age of 25, do you have any idea what will happen to those men and women by the time they're 65? These 100 people believe they're going to be successful. They are eager toward life, there is a certain sparkle in their eye, an erectness to their carriage, and life seems like a pretty interesting adventure to them.
But by the time they're 65, only one will be rich, four will be financially independent, five will still be working, and 54 will be broke - depending on others for life's necessities. " - by Earl Nightingale.

And here is my finding of why most people, regardless of which level of education, would easily fall into the trap of conformity.
