meaning of sentence which contains make it
Hi. I have a question about the meaning of the sentence and usage of "make it".
Dictionary says that one of the meanings of "make it" is to be successful at something.
and gives an example
How did anyone so stupid make it to manager?
-> Does this mean that how could people who are stupid become a manager?
if the meaning I wrote is correct, then "make it to the position of an occupation" means have that position?
Thank you in advance.
