Tip#722: Amazing Transformations, Part 1 – Dallas Buyers Club

Amazing transformations are inspiring to watch with movie heroes who are able to dramatically change their ways of thinking so they can solve seemingly impossible challenges. It is also amazing to see actors transform so much into their roles that they are almost unrecognizable.

Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

The biographical drama film, Dallas Buyers Club, is based on a true story of a reckless, homophobic electrician named Rob Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) living life carelessly through sex, alcohol and drugs. Once he is diagnosed with AIDS and given 30 days to live Woodroof goes through a personal transformation towards a healthier lifestyle with a powerful will to keep living. He also learns to embrace the gay community. See: movie trailer

Woodroof also demonstrates effective entrepreneurial skills as he not only acquires the drugs and vitamins that prolong his life, he makes them available to help other AIDS patients through the Dallas Buyers Club. Actor McConaughey’s physical transformation is astounding having lost nearly 50 pounds for the role. Actor Jared Leto also lost over 30 pounds to play Rayon, a transgender woman with an equally powerful performance.

The character Woodroof inspires because of his transformation towards life, his health and his acceptance of lifestyles different from his own. He also helped others by raising awareness to the ineffective medical help being offered at the time. Let him inspire you to be more mindful of your own health and relationships so you may live life fully for as long as you can!
