But it's killing me

You have to bear in mind that a huge winning tournament player still loses the vast majority of tournaments he plays.
People have a false perception of how often a good player actually wins.
Today I finished 104th in a 900 person tourney that paid the top 81
Today I finished 7th in a 25 person tourney that paid the top 3
Today I finished 8th in a 30 person tourney that paid the top 4
Today I finished 60th in a 7500 person tourney that paid the top 45
Today I finished 44th in a 7500 person tourney that paid the top 45...
...won a whopping $0.90 for that one
And to top things off in the Rush tourney I finished 400th out of 7500, but I was in the top 10 when I went out. I had the nut straight and completely missed seeing three diamonds on the board.
I'm "almost" there, but not quite, and it's very frustrating.
So I hear what you're saying when you say 10th place is good, but I should have finished in the money in ALL these tourneys, and in some of them I should have finished pretty high up. But at the end of the day it's just $0.90!!!!!!!!!!!! Damnit I need to learn a few more things, pay more attention, be less greedy, and have more patience.
Thanks folks for the feedback.
