I'd say just focus on the money. If you are making more money than you put into poker, then keep playing. Try to find your leaks so you can make even more money.
People seem way too concerned about being a "good player" for vanity's sake. The fact is that if you are making more money than you put in, then you are doing something right. Your goal should be to plug your leaks and try to become better each day. Become better than you were yesterday; THAT should be your primary goal. Always focus on making better decisions than your opponents and better decisions than the ones you made yesterday (i.e. try to learn from your mistakes).
If you play the "i'm better than you are" game you will never be satisfied. There will ALWAYS be somebody, somewhere in the world out there who is better than you at Poker no matter how far you get.
And when you read something about poker that you do not understand you should appreciate that moment; because you have found an opportunity to learn something you did not know before! The day will NEVER COME when you will know so much about poker that there is no material out there that can even begin to challenge you. NO ONE knows it all. Even old time pros find themselves challenged by the new era of online poker; poker is not what it used to be and in the future it will probably cease to be what it is now!
I define a good player as someone who is able to consistently pull money out of a poker site
. If you are doing that, then you are a good player in my book, no matter how much it is. I believe if you can make small amounts of money, then you are also capable of making larger amounts of money once you plug some leaks in your play.
