Building wealth and retiring comfortably doesn't have to be a pipe dream. It's a very realistic goal for most people, but it does require planning. According to TIME, a full 33 percent of Americans currently have no retirement savings at all, and that's a problem.

If you want to ensure you have the money you need, here are some wealth-building tips and strategies that can help.

Start Early for Best Results

Time is literally money when it comes to building wealth. The earlier you start investing in your future, the more time you have to take advantage of compound interest. You also won't have to worry as much about the temporary dips in the market because you'll have plenty of time to recover.

To really build wealth, you need to think about the big picture and the long term. You want to be looking at your 10- and 20-year returns instead of worrying about the daily ebbs and flows. If your employer offers a retirement plan, you'll do well to sign up for it (especially if they offer matching), even if you're 40 years from retirement.

Consider Your Goals and Options

Any time you're making a plan -- whether for your next vacation, dream house or finances -- you need to know the endgame before you can get very far. If your goal is to see the Grand Canyon, but you just started driving without a map, GPS or directions, it's going to take you a lot longer to get there -- if you get there at all.

The same principle applies when it comes to building wealth. If you don't know what your goal is, you won't be able to recognize when you've achieved it, and you won't know whether you're making good progress or need to reassess your investments.

What does this look like in real-life scenarios? Well, let's say that there was a market downturn and your portfolio suffered some losses. If you're close to retirement age or just want to be proactive, you could move some of your investments to a more aggressive allocation to make up for lost ground and hopefully get back on track to accumulating wealth.

However, it's important to understand that these investments also usually come with higher risk, so you'll want to talk to a qualified financial advisor before making any big moves.

If you have plenty of time before you're going to be actually living off your investments, such as when you retire, you may want to stick with the more conservative strategies that only invest a portion of your assets in the stock market. A popular choice for this kind of investment is an annuity.

Annuities are long-term investments that are designed to generate supplemental income after retirement, and they come with the minimum guarantees and claims-paying abilities of the insurance company that issues them.
