Are such ads effective and worth the expense? Did you get a boost in sales after such ads?

No use making mountains out of molehills, its at least better than getting aids at rock bottom.

What does it teach?


RhinosGoMoo t1_j0ficaz wrote

I guess that's like asking "What's the meaning of life?"

It's different for every individual. It depends on you as a person, on what "rock bottom" looks like for you, on how you got there...

But generally, it teaches you the skills needed to claw your way back up from rock bottom. And those same skills can be very valuable in life in many other ways.

Yeah, it's metaphorical.

If you're at your lowest point, any decision you make that doesn't add to your misery is a "step up" from your current low point

Depends what your 'rock bottom' is. But usually, it teaches you how to live a better life -- by showing you what you should have avoided.

Resilience, humility and compassion to others. With hard work and striving to better yourself you will build these character.

Unless you lie, cheat, and steal your way to the top, then you will be selfish, unforgiving, and proud.

Just don't tell Dee Reynolds she was YOUR rock bottom


Zilkin t1_j0g4jdi wrote

A lot more people are at the rock bottom than at the top. So those lessons mean nothing.


PlayHumankind t1_j0gnfqo wrote

The lessons do mean something, yes a lot of people are at the bottom right now but if only 1% of people at the bottom take this and it motivates them to achieve more it would certainly be worth it.
