Sisu is my middle name -- it's a unique Finnish concept that can be applied to anyone and it is roughly translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Sisu is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain that courage. It is a word that cannot be fully translated.
