"make the best of every situation"




"get the best from every situation"


Which you use is largely a matter of preference.


The "get" version carries a slightly negative connotation of manipulating events to one's advantage, perhaps over the best interests of other people.


The "make" version has a more positive connotation of determination to have something good come out of adversity, which may well include benefit for people other than oneself.
