Success is the best revenge that doesn't make the world (slightly) worse. Imprisoning, suing, and murdering people for revenge may sometimes be legal or just, but they always make the world a little worse off. (Just imagine if everybody was sued or in jail or dead...) Your own success, however, makes the world a better place on of being a stick in the eyes of your enemies.

Wouldn't it deter or actively prevent them from harming others and in cases were this would be a valid concern - make the world better for decent people?

Yes, justice is a net benefit, but it still has the downside of punishment. Your own success has no downside whatsoever.
