Where this book helps
Often when people are asking questions in frustration, those inquiries often interpreted as whining or complaining. The questions, in fact, may be requesting honest information from others who don’t understand or worse do not have the ability to help.
Helping with needless, unanswered questions, is where Think and Grow Rich by Dennis Kimbro may help. The book teaches how to overcome obstacles and form strategies that face many of us as we continue the journey through life to discover a purpose that will lead to success.
At the beginning of the book Kimbro sets the tone with two quotes:
“Wealth is the progressive mastery of matter by mind.” -R. Buckminster Fuller
“Poverty is a disease of the mind.” – S. B. Fuller
Look at life with a purpose
The choice to be rich is not limited to making financial enrichment; it extends itself to health, peace of mind, unity, and attitude. The selection of our thoughts and living life with purpose is also a message given in the book.
According to Kimbro, your outlook on life, faith, recognizing your talent and commitment to success are the key components to prosperity.

The book also clarifies the following:
- Law of Correspondence
- Law of Substitution

What are you worth?
Kimbro then answers the question, “What Are You Worth?”
The quote that introduces the chapter is:
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent – Eleanor Roosevelt
In this chapter, Kimbro explains that the way others think of you reflects the way you think of yourself; in that way, through the way you feel about yourself, you give permission for others to treat you that same way.
On cause and effect: Whatever we think about will materialize. If you constantly think about poverty, illness, etc., guess what will emerge in your life? You got it! If you think about success, health, etc., you experience prosperity, and wellness at some point. That is the law of cause and effect!
