"Massive Action"

While I'm working on this project, I have time to watch you tube videos and I've noticed something. All the motivational type speakers all advocate taking "massive action" toward your dreams. I mean I love Tony Robbins stuff and he's the most vocal advocate of taking massive action out there. The whole idea is to connect your emotions to your actions. I agree with this in principal and with most types of businesses. However, there is a disconnect in my opinion. 

How do you take massive action in trading? I mean, emotions can kill your account. I know you cannot eliminate emotions from trading and I'm not searching for a way to do this but honestly, what does "massive action" mean to a trader? I'm open to comments and suggestions. 

No trades last two days for me either. Monday I was super sick with a stomach bug and today I overslept as a result of not sleeping yesterday from the stomach bug.

  1. I could just be channeling my essential problem, but to me massive action means TAKE THE RISK.

  2. Massive action >> other phrases that can be used > action is louder than words, action as "icebreaker", action turn dream to reality.
    However, this massive action more suitable for biznes that has clear workflow , ceRtain biz models. On the other hand, trading is more about selling and buying risks, thriving in unceRtainty. Optimal, persistent action is required in trading, not the massive one :)

  3. To me, massive action is creating a process and following it through thick and thin. Once you have that, then it means recording your efforts in a radical way in order to see things differently and find ways to systematically improve.

    1. As it turns out, I have watched many of them and in fact, I am the featured speaker on one of those webinars. That does not mean I am a good trader, just that I was a speaker at one time.....

  5. If you are serious, and I can't tell if you are, cut the vague punchlines such as those mentioned above, and start at the horse's mouth .....

    The idea is clear - be very specific, and detailed. Words have no meaning without action.
