    The people who get on in this world

    People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them.
    - George Bernard Shaw

    Does "The people who get on in this world" means people who are able to succeed?
