There are times when we start to feel more so than others times that we need to exhibit courage to help make the world a better place. But this can come at a huge cost to the self. It’s important to remember that things are rarely a sprint, and always a marathon. I came across this interesting article that expresses a philosophy on how to sustain courage.
Sisu is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain that courage. It is a word that cannot be fully translated. It defines the Finnish people and their character. It stands for the philosophy that what must be done will be done, regardless of cost.
Sisu is an inherent characteristic of the Finnish people. You might call it backbone, spunk, stamina, guts, or drive and perseverance. It is a measure of integrity that surpasses the hardship and sees through to the end.https://lifehacker.com/become-more-resilient-by-adopting-the-finnish-approach-1844254184
