So we were translating participles from English into Spanish infinitives, and one of the sentences was "Succeeding is making good decisions." I was having an off-day, and could vaguely remember something like "éxito" for success, so I went ahead and made it a verb, exitar. Apparently, that's actually a very vulgar word. My profe wouldn't tell me exactly what it means, just that it's sexual. So my question is, what's the best English equivalent?

Oh P.S. I'm taking Biblical Hebrew next semester and was wondering how helpful that would be towards learning Modern Hebrew.
