If people who only seek worldly pleasures would be more aware of what they would gain in terms of living a joyful life by gaining a mitzvah-orientation to life, they would upgrade their entire way of thinking and acting. They want pleasure and joy, and they would realize that the way to long-lasting pleasure and joy is rejoicing in Torah and mitzvos.
