Mindset: How You Can Fulfill Your Potential

On a parenting course, this book was recommended: it makes the distinction between two kinds of mindsets, and explains how to move from one to the other. On the one hand, the fixed mindset – where your response to failure is to blame yourself, and avoid the situation that led to the failure. On the other hand, the growth mindset, where failure is a chance to learn, and expand what you’re capable of doing.

There’s a mix in the book of content: some is helpful in raising children with a growth mindset, the rest is targeted at developing your own mindset. Full of practical examples, it’s worth a read.
