You need to set the financial goals you want to achieve. Where do you see yourself in the future financially? How much do you want to save and have in your bank account? Write down financial goals and follow through.

3. Not seeking financial advice

If you think you don't need financial advice from professional, then you are making a big mistake.

You really cannot know all about handling everything that entails money and finance, which is why you need to seek the help of a financial advisor to help you make good financial decisions.

Set right priorities when it comes to your budget. If what you want to get is not in your budget and you are also getting to your budget limit, then don't spend that money on frivolities.

5. Having no retirement plan

You can't keep living life without planning for your old age. You need to plan for your retirement very early to avoid problems in your old age. As you try to make ends meet and achieve your financial goals also put retirement plans into the equation.
