Success begins with giving your best shot. Excellent! Excellent! and Excellent! Probably at the most critical time in his life, facing possible annihilation, despite perceived fears and perceived shortcomings, Jacob realizes that the best he can do is utilize his kop (head), and execute his plan of action giving it his best shot. Hashem takes care of the rest when Hashem sees that we are fully, or try to be fully engaged with the challenge at hand. It is as if, when Hashem is persuaded that you are honestly putting in the best effort, He will give you that extra push to succeed. Reply
