In Greek legend Midas was a King who was granted any reward by the God Dionysis for a good deed Midas had done. Midas asked that anything he touched should be turned to gold and was given that power. Only then did Midas realise he would starve to death and asked to be relieved of the power.
In modern days if we say someone has the Midas touch we mean that everything they do is successful or profitable.

Midas touch means golden touch. It is a very lucky touch. For eg., if I touch you once, you will progress so well in life. (fun).
