SKILL TO LEARN: 

How to be second, third, or….last, and feel okay no matter what position in the sequence you find yourself in (as in a line, queue, or a race).

 NEW UNDERSTANDING:

It’s okay to be second, third,…or last. I don’t always have to be first. Other people can be first sometimes. Being first doesn’t mean “right”; just like being other-than-first doesn’t mean “wrong”. It’s okay to be in any order. The order can change from day to day, and activity to activity. more ““BEING SECOND, THIRD,…OR EVEN LAST!””

How to acknowledge that a mistake is discovered; understand that mistakes can be corrected; and feel okay with mistakes and the act of correcting.
