How to Build Your Power

I had a funny thought that instead of thinking of myself as a bodybuilder, or a powerlifter, better for me to think of myself as a “powerbuilder“, that is, my joy and aim is to keep building my power.

Why do I not like the notion of being a “powerlifter“? Because I don’t compete. I don’t want to be put into that category. Also, I do not want to just be restricted to three lifts.

Also from a metaphorical perspective, I like the idea of powerbuilding. That our ultimate end goal in life is to keep building our power. Not for some evil ends, but rather, toward some virtuous ends. I want to become the powerman.
