Yes. If you take an action and get result "P", and then decide at a time
after the the action that resulted in "P" that "P" equalled a success
condition then you had not tried for success at the time of action, yet got
it. If your imagination and memory of the past is strong there may be
events and actions of your distant history that you have not yet labeled as
success, that you may reflect on and realize that those actions have caused
enormous benefits in your life.

There is no universal law, rule, or custom--including this one.
