What is Sisu?

Sisu is a Finnish word which has no English equivalent. It relates to resilience, hardiness, grit, and courage. A word that can describe people out there willing to take action to do what's right for them and their community.

“Sisu” comes from a Finnish root word that implies “inner” or “inside.” This is one reason it is sometimes translated as “guts” or “inner strength.” Linguistically speaking, the concept of sisu goes back 500 years or more. It can refer to “stoic determination, hardiness, courage, bravery, willpower, tenacity and resilience.” It’s “an action-oriented mindset.” You don’t brag about having sisu; you just “let your actions do the talking.”

-The Finnish Art of Courage by Joanna Nylund
