idioms!

 I know in English, we have idioms that refer to some sort of notion of braving adversity/taking responsibility... tnote that hese all don't mean the same thing, but they all are ways to deal with something difficult.
- stiff upper lip
- keep your chin up
- pull yourself up by the bootstraps
- suck it up
- tough it out

what are these equivalents (not literal translations...more like cultural variations) in other languages? I'm particularly curious about Russian, but anything would be great!
