Exclamation successful in vs. successful at

When do we use in and when do we use at exactly?

I heard an opinion that "in" is used for a specific achievement, and "at" as a generalization, for showing the areas in which someone thrives. Is it any good?

Thanks for your reply!

PS. If I've made any mistakes here, please be so kind as to point them out. Thanks a bunch
