make something out of our lives

Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

In terms of state politics, added Mondale,
It was an optimistic time. We were all going to make something out of our lives. Education would get us there and it was avail-able to everyone.

Does "make something out of our lives" mean to achieve somthing if life, be successful?

Thank you.
