Advertisements also attack people with a materialistic attitude as they tend to believe that their life would indeed become better with that particular product. They become slaves to material things and they buy more and more of what they do not need. This also means that they can be pressurized into things very easily which is not a sign of a strong person. They do not have any freedom in their own life as they cannot direct themselves.
Also, such people are more focused toward rewards at job, or anywhere for that matter, rather than actually enjoying doing their duty. They would make sure to work more and better, even if they are tiring themselves out just for the sake of gaining that extra bonus or perks which do not do anything for their soul. They do not enjoy the essential elements of the challenge but rather just work like a robot.
Such people need to break out of their shell and try to enjoy their lives.
