The more you behave good in this month the more you get rewards. All Rewards in multiple like if you get 1 good deed in all 11 months you will get 10 Reward in return from Allah Almighty but in Ramadan if you get 1 good deed you will get multiples of 10 reward. Reward in sense of blessings for whole year, showers of happiness in whole year, your dreams might fulfilled, you will be forgiven, all your sins you did intentionally or unintentionally will be forgiven if you ask for forgiveness and decided not to do it again.
