I reject that quote about we learn by being hypocritcal. If a person starts to change or even starts to try to change, he is not at that point hypocritcal he is honestly trying to change and improve and eventually the change will be more easy and natural and take less focus. If I have been mostly rude or lazy and I want to change to be polite and industrious, my first steps towards civility and industriousness do not have to be made in hypocrisy.

Caleb,

The point is really that we change our behavior by doing, or as the quote suggests, by pretending to be something that maybe at the moment we are not—which would be hypocritical, but in a positive direction. I think there's some great insight in there, we don't have to be what we are, we just need to change our actions and we eventually change our thoughts and attitudes.

Thanks for reading.

—Ty
