If you are grateful for your life's blessings and want to thank God for them, you can express your thanks in prayers and deeds. Spend a few moments every night to say a small "thank you" to God: not just for your successes; offer your thanks even when you fail. Failures are the stepping stones to success. Ask God to guide you through your difficulties so that you emerge strong. Find your inner strength by focusing your energies on your goal.

These "thank you, God" quotes are more than expressions of gratitude. They inspire you to have humility and sincerity. They remind you that you are lucky to have your desires fulfilled and that you should not take your blessings for granted. Many others, though not as lucky as you, have overcome their difficulties and continued on their path. Fortune favors the brave, but don't let your achievements make you overconfident or ungrateful. Stay humble; a small mistake can wipe out your fortunes.
