   I think Eddie got a point, it seems that following on has a certain intersection with

the meanings of GO ON.   I mean, a "Resume or proceed in a certain state, condition, or activity" or "keep functioning/working (here having success) of sorts.

   For comparison see the following site.

Verb: go on
Resume or proceed in a certain state, condition, or activity
"We went on working until well past midnight"
- continue, proceed, go along, keep

"What is going on?"
- happen, hap, pass off, occur, pass, fall out, come about, take place

"Time goes on"
