Here is my best explanation:

'success' is the definition.
(I have seen 'Ephemeral success' mean 'flash in the pan' so perhaps 'success' could also mean 'flash in the pan')

'arrange help infant has' is the wordplay.
'arrange' indicates an anagram.
'help'+'infant'+'has'='helpinfanthas'
'helpinfanthas' is an anagram of 'FLASH IN THE PAN'.

'not repeated earlier' acts as a link.
This may not be correct. Some or all of it may be part of another bit of the clue.
