As long as you're still breathing, dream fulfillment is only a trial away.

Everyone has a dream whether it’s to open your own business, own a nice home, become a known author, start a family or anything in between. So, why is it so few people seem to achieve their dreams?

Author Marlene Garten believes the reason for most people’s lost dreams is they are either unaware of or unwilling to face the trials and tribulations they must endure for their dreams to come to fruition. Her new guide, “Constitution of Iron,” uses the story of Joseph as a case study for other dreamers.

“If God planted a dream in your heart, I believe that he is saying to you that it’s never too late, you’re never too old, you’re never too young,” Garten said. “As long as you’re still breathing, dream fulfillment is only a trial away.”

One cannot get from point A to point C without running through the gauntlet of point B. That middle section is filled with challenges, so Garten wants readers to take note from Joseph and take those trials head-on to persevere.
