Turning “I am” into “I am Nothing”

Whenever we receive anything good or succeed in something, we need to say, “Thank You, Hashem!” This is called turning “I am” into “I am nothing.” Nothing is from me; all is from Hashem. Once we recognize that all of our success comes only from Hashem and show Him gratitude, our success can continue. This light of gratitude brings us to humility, which brings us to happiness.
