DETERMINATION: Keep On Keeping On!

  • Apr 9, 2014 · 6:30 PM

“When we are DETERMINED, we care about something so much that even when difficulties arise, and things don’t come easy, we keep on keeping on. If one path doesn’t work, we try another way.” ~ The Virtues Project.

What do you want to accomplish? Do you have the resolve to ‘keep on keeping on’?

The past 3 months have challenged me to ‘dig deep’ and cultivate DETERMINATION so I could achieve a major milestone in my life. By consciously practicing the virtues we’ve been studying during our monthly meet-ups (confidence, courage and decisiveness), I was able to ‘keep on keeping on’ and achieve my goal! During this meet-up, I’ll share with you the 3-step process I used.

Presentation take aways: you will go through a 3-step process to empower you:

• speak your truth with confidence and courage

• clarify what you want so you can make a decision

• write your statement of DETERMINATION and take action

You’ll write your statement of DETERMINATION on flying wish paper - check out this video for a sneak peak - it’s so cool! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKCmgICzlak  

With DETERMINATION we will succeed!


This meet up will be led by Shannon D. Silva, Founder and Organizer of Unstoppable Women of Silicon Valley.

    What a phenomenal meet up! It was my first meeting and I am so glad I found you :) Shannon is an incredible speaker and so inspiring! I love the theme of the meeting, the awesome speech and thought-provoking conversations, the music memory making moments, the fly paper wish activity, and the warmth and brightness in everyone I met. I've been looking for a women's community for a few years now. So glad I found you!

    Awesome! Awesome! It was a great meetup with determined women in their path of transitions. I so enjoyed the "fly paper wish declaration." It was so creative! I am in transition to a new job and our meetup on determination just gave me more fuel to be firedup within my spirit to believe in my success on this new journey and overcome fear with my new job. Thank you!

    Awesome topic!! Shannon was an incredible speaker as always, and the fly paper was really unique experience! I chose my health as my 'thing' to focus on during this event, and I definitely walked away feeling clearer about *why* I need to give it 100%, and what's holding me back.

    • Shannon

      Thanks Jillian! I'm thrilled that this meetup help you gain clarity and identify what's holding you back that's the 1st step.

    • Shannon

      Thanks for reaching out to Lynn, Jillian. Lynn, I've added you to the RSVP list. As Jillian mentioned, I'm not supposed to take money on-site, so my request is that you put the money in an envelope and give it to Tricia (she'll be at the registration table) - this makes it more discreet. Thanks!

  • Marilyn

    Wow! I won't be able to attend this meeting but I wanted you to know that DETERMINATION is in the air! I returned from a 13 day course in February with a heart DETERMINED to stay DETERMINED to do the work I am here to do! So, when I saw the topic of the next meeting I said, "Hurrah!" and had to let you know I am with you in consciousness even though my body will not attend. Have an amazing meeting (I know you will) and may your attendees all leave DETERMINED!

    March 29, 2014

    • Marilyn

      I am definitely there. My body will be in Orlando . . . but, hey, we know determination is a matter of spirit, not the flesh! Thanks for your support.

      April 2, 2014

    • Shannon

      Well said Marilyn!
