This sentence stuck out for me.... 'playing properly' in an MTT means making adjustments to the other players on your table, as well as making necessary adjustments in play in relation to your stack size & how it relates to the size of the blinds... and to the size of rest of the stacks on your table.
ie. quite often (situationally dependent obv.) when you're sitting on a resteal-sized stack of say 15-25bb's and you're in LP or in the blinds and an overly aggressive player who's been opening up alot of pots comes in for a raise, you'll need to be shipping in the pile with stuff like QTs, J9s, etc. (situationally dependant obviously... but just an example).
You're never (or rarely ever) going to win an MTT by playing 'tight' (aka 'proplerly' <?) in mid to late stages of an MTT - sitting & waiting for big hands is a recipe for failure.
hope this helps....
