The ability to walk away (TATWA) is fundamental in leading a happy, healthy, and fruitful life. TATWA has applications with almost every single human interaction we engage in, especially in business and dating. When I was shopping for a car and the seller refused to offer a fair price, I walked away and negotiated with other sellers on Craigslist until I struck a deal I felt comfortable with. This saved me a few thousand dollars and a potential multitude of headaches dealing with repairs. When I was on a first date and the other person told me that “all religions are bullshit” after I ask them if they heard of the Vedanta Society in Providence Rhode Island (Vedanta isn’t even a religion, it’s a Hindu philosophy), I politely got up, told them that wasn’t a debate I was willing to have, and left. The ironic thing is that I’m agnostic, but even I believe religions and philosophies deserve a basic level of decency and respect.
TATWA demonstrates strength, resolve, and value. If a boundary is crossed and there are no consequences, it sets a dangerous precedent that boundaries are meaningless, and that leads to potential abuse and being taken advantage of. If a person or group sees and understands that we have TATWA, they’ll be eager and encouraged to respect us. TATWA can be cultivated, and is extremely hard if not impossible to bluff. TATWA comes from both inner and outer strength. Living a healthy lifestyle, incorporating abundance of opportunity in our lives, and being self-reliant when it’s strategic to do so all lead to TATWA.
But living a healthy lifestyle is not enough. TATWA is a mental state, a paradigm with which we live our lives and recognize we deserve to experience a healthy life. TATWA is paramount to our mental health and well-being. With TATWA we’re in control of our own destiny. Without TATWA, we’re left vulnerable to the whims of a third party. TATWA is like investing in stocks: some will win, some will lose, but ultimately we have the ability to buy and sell whatever and whenever we want. And because with TATWA we are allowed this power and ability, we’re left stronger, more capable, and better off.
TATWA wins negotiations. If we have TATWA, we have leverage, and we have the ability to not succumb to the other side’s harsh demands. Without TATWA, we’re a sitting duck, waiting to be taken advantage of. Good negotiators never enter negotiations without TATWA. Without TATWA, we’re doomed to concede all our leverage.
TATWA allows us to bounce back and recover fast. If something does or doesn’t work out is not important, with TATWA we’re always building our arsenal of value without depending or relying on others. Regardless of if something goes well or doesn’t work out, TATWA is a neutral force that’s just about maximizing our freedom and flexibility. TATWA displays inner strength and resolve. Performing TATWA cuts out the unhealthy in our lives, preserves our dignity, and ultimately leads to better results.
TATWA is sets up healthy boundaries and shields us from potential abuse. In business and negotiation, when we display TATWA, we let the other parties know that disrespect is a non-starter, and that if we aren’t treated with the decency we deserve, then we always have the option of going elsewhere. In dating, TATWA promotes happiness while discourages disagreement. Even the physical act of leaving the room during an argument is a version of TATWA, and allows tensions to diffuse so that reconciliation is possible.
TATWA is an inherently attractive quality we can own in business as well as in dating. In business, a person who commands TATWA has a level of recognition that burgeons influence and authority. In dating, TATWA is the opposite of neediness and clinginess. We want what we cannot have, and when someone shows they have TATWA, they also show that their affection has to be earned, and isn’t just given out freely. And when we have to work for something, we inherently appreciate it more than had it been dropped at our feet.
Conclusion: TATWA is applicable for both men and women, as well as meant to help us thrive in business, dating, and life in general. TATWA is an ability that empowers the individual, and allows for better options and more opportunities in life. With TATWA, we can cycle through the bad and focus on the good. TATWA brings us joy and happiness in our business transactions, our dating experiences, and our lives in general. With TATWA, we’re allowed to pursue our full potential and attract those people that will lead us to succeed.
