    8/23/16 Debbie’s WOD

    Sisu is a Finnish word that cannot be translated metaphrastically into the English language, loosely translated to mean stoic determination, grit, bravery, guts,resilience,[1][2] perseverance and hardiness,[3][4] expressing the historic self-identified Finnish national character.

    Sisu is about taking action against the odds and displaying courage and resoluteness in the face of adversity. Deciding on a course of action and then sticking to that decision against repeated failures is Sisu. It is similar to equanimity, with the addition of a grim quality of stress management. The pertaining adjective is sisukas, “having the quality of Sisu”.

    “Having guts” is a fairly literal translation, as the word derives from sisus, which means something inner or interior. One closely related concept to Sisu is grit; which shares some of its denoting elements with Sisu, save for “stress management” and passion for a long-term goal. Sisu may have an element of passion but it is not always present,[5] unlike in the case of grit as defined by Dr. Angela Duckworth.[6]
