The thing is, is that regardless of the amount of registered players in a tournament I usually make into the final ten to twenty percentile. And it's not because I'm just sitting back waiting for others to be eliminated. I mean I'm a rookie and all but I'd like to think that I'm giving it my all whenever I'm at the table. I'm also usually in pretty good shape chip wise. The thing is that while I understand to have a sporting shot at beating the bubble your stack has to continually grow, when I'm getting close to that point I'm blowing it. It's really starting to get frustrating especially considering the amount of time and effort it takes to get to the level I'm getting blown out at. Any ideas or input would be greatly appreciated.

First off, i not fond of a gun pointed in my face via your profile pic.
Secondly, you seem to be too loose of a player. You need to play tighter,
esecally after you get a good chip stack. and early in a mtt. Hand selection is key; use it to your advantadge. if your opponets are playing you as a honest player, use c-bets to steal big pots, or just pots in general. keeping your opponets off balence in there assement of your game is key; they will get frustrated and you will be able to destroy them with a monster hand when they feel you are c-betting again.
