The only meaning I'm familiar with for 'put your best foot forward' is 'try hard to do your best (usually in order to make a good impression)'. The choice that is closest to the meaning as I know it is 'make an effort'.
However, according to online sources, the idiom apparently has several meanings. Here is one link:
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power." ~ Abraham Lincoln
