If your answer to the question is yes, then read what Allāh سبحانه و تعالىhas to say about those who deserve two Gardens in Surat ar-Raḥmān,

وَلِمَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ جَنَّتَانِ
“But for him who fears the standing before his Lord, there will be two Gardens (i.e. in Paradise).”[1]

Imām al-Māwardī رحمه الله writes three statements regarding this ayah,

“Firstly: Whoever fears to stand before his Lord after the performance of the obligations said Ibn ‘Abbās

Secondly: He is distressed with his sin and he leaves it as soon as he remembers his standing before his Lord said Mujāhid

Thirdly: It was specifically revealed for Abū Bakr رضي الله عنه when he remembered a day the Paradise will be brought near and the Hell will be emerged said ‘Aṭā’ and Ibn Shudhab.”[2]
Ibn ‘Abbās رضي الله عنهما said,
“Feared then had Taqwa and the one who feared (khā’if); is the onewho rode upon the obedience of Allāh and left His disobedience.”[3]

I've heard that the tafseer (tabari) of a particular ayah (I can't remember which one, but will find out inshAllah) that says we have inherited two houses; one of which is in jannah, and the other in jahannam, and the one we will choose to inherit is based on our fulfilment of the qualities of a mu'min.

InshAllah I'll try to find out more.
