Discover the Finnish quality of sisu and how cultivating it can help you lead a life of greater purpose and happiness.

This ancient Finnish word describes an attitude of courage, resilience, grit, tenacity and perseverance. This key psychological competence enables extraordinary action in times of adversity. To have sisu confers a further dimension of doing so with honesty, integrity and humility.

By cultivating sisu you can:

  • Face life's challenges with courage and determination

  • Enhance your wellbeing and find your focus

  • Communicate confidently and resolve conflicts effectively

  • Cultivate endurance and achieve your fitness goals

  • Raise kind and resilient children

  • Act with integrity and fight for what you believe in

    Sisu is a universal trait. It may have been bottled and labelled by the Finns, but it is within reach of everyone. It lies within you, and you are very likely to have used it already.

    Interesting review

    Linda , your comments are so interesting to me. I enjoy reading and your words are well chosen. Becky was the name of my biological son's paternal great grandmother. Known affectionately as " Mama Becky " , obviously a nickname for Rebecca. She was a Russian Jewish immigrant and I met her only one time. Maybe we could be pen pals because I have been told that my life has been very interesting and you seem to have had some interesting life experiences also. Thanks for reading !!

    I am so impressed with the glass bird. As a matter of fact, it surpassed my expectations. The bluebird holds a very special meaning in remembrance of my late Sister Becky. I like the bracelets, however, after wearing one for several days, the charm of the Finnish flag fell off. I done believe I can repair it. My kids loved the magnets and I was able to save one for myself. The salted licorice? NOT for me!
    FYI I visited your store in 1988. My husband worked for the Air Force Audit Agency on KI Sawyer. He was head of the office. We bought a home in Harvey. Our stay in Michigan was short. Your many trees caused me to have claustrophobia because I was born and raised in the deserts of Utah. Thank you for your excellent service.
