“If you are grateful, I will give you more.” (14:7)

1. Be confident

Finding your inner confidence is just another way to show that you are appreciative of who you are. It is easy to get caught up in thoughts of what you have not accomplished yet, but part of being grateful is recognizing the beauty Allah has bestowed upon you through your talent, intellect or aspirations.

2. See the silver lining

This means find good in every situation. Yes, it’s easier said than done but train your mind to view every setback or mishap as one step closer to your ultimate fate. Allah has already written it for you, so trust Him, this is all part of the plan!

3. Help others

Sometimes when we lose ourselves in failure or get caught up in our lives, we forget that small actions can help uplift us while benefitting others. Helping those in need doesn’t always mean volunteering at a hospital or feeding the homeless. This can be done by giving a few cents to the someone in need, or tutoring a friend for an exam. Try it. We forget the pleasure and accomplishment involved in helping others. It is also another way to recognize your ability to do good and be grateful for such opportunities.
