Gotcha. I like the sig because people misconstrue high standards and not settling for anything less for being arrogant and they are not the same thing. Arrogance is more like talking BS, saying you can do things that you do not have the ability to do.

Confidence is saying things that you do have the ability to do AND THEN DOING IT!

Having high standards means not settling for anything less than a certain criteria (I.E. for me a certain level of play in regards to getting better).

There are always gonna be people that are going to get all of this confused, but it just means they do not understand the true meaning of everything!

Very nice, i couldn't have said it better.There is a thin line between arrogance and having high standards.The only thing that makes the difference is the character + things you have done and esspecially the things you are doing now.Never get drunk from compliments, be open minded and always have something to prove in everything you do ;)

Exactly and people miscontrue because someone may be a good/top player in their area means that they are arrogant. Sometimes people even due to hate of a particular person/envy look for reasons to call such a person arrogant, so there are many factors into play here.

I agree, people begin to get arrogant when they do not have a way to keep themselves humble, and just listen to the compliments people give them.

In the situations of KOF play, I make sure to keep myself humble in Mexico by playing very very strong opponents all the time. But at the same time I get spoiled by that level of play so I come back here and I have high standards in regards to what I want to see in order to travel to tournaments!


Plus having a chip on your shoulder as you put it is a great asset, that is something I always do in tournaments, and if you notice that is a quality of other greats in other sports as well (Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, WR Steve Smith), they always play with a chip on their shoulder in tournaments, they always remember any and everything every hater/doubter has said about them even since the beginning even though these people may have come to realize they were wrong.

Bottom line is you have to keep yourself grounded/humble AND motivated, those are the keys to not becoming cocky, quitting the things that got you where you are in the first place and becoming complacent (see the Lakers hahaha).

Hence again I say to people that they have to travel, and staying in their country is NOT enough! You have to leave your COMFORT ZONE,  this way you keep things fresh, exciting, you keep yourself motivated, and this stops you from becoming complacent and sipping on your own koolaid so to speak!!!

I don't see having a chip on one's shoulder as something helpful... Infact, most times it can hinder and make someone lose focus because they have such a grudge against this person or that person that they overwork themselves, instead of just being focus (which can be done with or without the grudge). One can be determined to prove people wrong about their skill level or winning a tourney (or placing high), but that doesn't have to involve grudges of any kind... And in some cases, having a chip on one's shoulder could lead to cockiness which could also result in laxation depending on the person (Michael Jordan was so cocky at one point in his career he didn't think he could get crossed up by Allen Iverson, but did -- and very badly)...

I agree with the need to travel, but why "construct skyscrapers in other countries when there's not even a hut in our own"??? What I mean is that the general consensus from what I read and hear is that when it comes to skill level and KoF in the states, we're weak overall (like you won't see us crushing dudes in Japan or Hong Kong, etc. in high level tourneys). If you're in the states, and you've got a console with KoF and some sticks (or pads) and there's someone with at least an inkling of KoF knowledge that's near other cats that are interested in the game, why not start building there??? It might take some time, but all things take time to grow (babies, level of knowledge, annuity accounts, etc). You can't expect to hop in a dojo and come out a black belt in a week. Even with high standards, a sifu will still take time to train up even the most difficult students, albeit in a strict manner, but there's still training done... Once that time and care has been put into the scene to where they're competitive, then traveling to tourneys would be cool. I mean even while the scene is being built, traveling would be good for the sheer fact that you can see how other cats play, and you can see what character is strong in that particular region - the learning experience would be beneficial... Leaving a comfort zone can be as simple as hooking up with a cat across the street to play KoF instead of on xbl/psn...
