Everybody has to go through different phases of life. With each passing phase their requirement changes so is their financial needs. A bachelor monetary need is different than the married person. That is why it is better to evaluate one's financial need annually to figure out what step one should follow to make their lives financially secure.
Prioritizing the financial need means to pinpoint the factors that determine ones saving goals in order. An individual without capital has to climb step by step on the financial ladder but a rich person directly starts building wealth, which is last priority because they have already met their rest of financial needs. Some of the common priority of an individual is as follows:
Building contingency fund

A person needs to secure their income with adequate insurance cover for their family and his own retirement period.
Investing for other goals
Based on comfort ability and necessity one should start investing for other goals of life such as buying a car, building assets, funding for children education and of the same.
At a last rug of the financial ladder, one should invest additional surplus capital in a business venture for abundance in life.
In conclusion, prioritize your financial need and follow the way out to fulfill your monetary goals and family dreams.
