Jeff Rose talks about the importance of setting goals. In fact, it's often the wealthiest people who are consistently reviewing their goals. To help you align your goals with your behaviors, Rose recommends a few steps:

  1. Have a plenty of cash on hand. If you're unsure how to generate more cash, consider selling items you no longer use via the internet or yard sales. 
  2. Get ready of junk you don't use. You can start by looking at some of avenues of spending you simply don't need to dedicate so many funds to, including spending on your phone bill, streaming services or internet bill. 
  3. Don't get trapped in the mindset that you won't be capable of paying off your debt. Instead, cut out any negative thinking and concentrate on making measured steps on paying off a deficit. 
  4. Plan retirement early. When thinking about retirement go in with the intention of saving money that will allow you to live the life you want in the future.To further this goal, you should look into multiple forms of investing -- including with the stock market but also outside of it. Investments outside of the stock market can include peer-to-peer lending and investing in real estate.
