"Set the world on fire" nghĩa là gì?

'Set the world on fire' (khiến thế giới rực cháy) nghĩa là thành công rực rỡ, lừng danh (to do exciting things that bring fame and glory).

Ví dụ
Microsoft's Edge browser hasn't exactly set the world on fire.

Davis isn’t going to set the world on fire in Dallas, this is not the next Reggie White we’re talking about – not even close. But he does have a chance to make an impact in a limited role for a team that desperately needs help in the pass-rush game.

Don’t expect to see Mountcastle in Baltimore any time soon. Though he was young for the Sally league and a promotion to Frederick would seem to be in order for 2017, he didn’t exactly set the world on fire. His wRC+ of 112 was fourth among 19 year olds in the Sally League, but there was pretty clear separation between the top three and Mountcastle. This is fine, by the way.
