Explanation

You need something for the blank that a “great soul” would do in the face of turmoil and tribulation. Since in the face of indicates opposite direction, the meaning is something like “remain calm.” Conviction (a firmly held belief) might work, but it has no partner. Self-esteem and pride are a pair, but they don’t make much sense in the sentence. Equanimity and sangfroid both imply an inner tranquility.

Hence options Equanimity, sangfroid are best fit!
