环境越艰难,硬汉越吃香

I searched it by Google. And I think 'the going' refer to condition and the second 'the tough' refer to man with strong will.

FYI.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. 艰难之路,唯勇者行
这句话据说连美国总统肯尼迪的老父亲也经常挂在嘴边的。

tough意指: 艰苦的, 坚强的, 坚韧的
前面加个定冠词the,特指某种类型的人,即:那些坚韧不拨的人
going在此为形容词,意为进行中的、流行的、现存的(事/物/人),在此句中the going可特指为当前的形势
get:前半句的get意为变成、变得;后半句的get意为获得、取得

前半句:When the going gets tough 即:当形势变得艰苦/艰难时
后半句:the tough get going 即:那些坚韧不拨的人就能得到形势
那么意会这句话的意思就是:艰难之路,唯勇者行

"get going" means to start taking action (to deal with the difficult situation).
