Something I don't hear people discuss WRT bitachon + hishtadlus = success...

Yaaqov prepared for Esav's approach in THREE ways:
- Tefillah - covering bitachon
- Doron - covering hishtadlus for success
- Preparing for war, including splitting into two camps.

It seems like Yaaqov Avinu was not only preparing for Hashem to grant him
success as he would like things to turn out. He also engaged in cutting his
losses if the usual prayer + hishtadlus does not get him safe passage.

Tir'u baTov!
