Success kissed his feet sounds "foreign" to me. I had never heard it till your post, but I guessed its meaning correctly. The similar idiom, to kiss his/her feet, means to express profuse, obsequious thanks, so it's a little confusing to read about "success" kissing someone's feet.
A reasonably common idiom with a similar meaning is he/she had a golden touch, suggesting that everything the person touched turned to gold.
