    GO from a position of power.

    Adam, you want to come back strong
    here. GO from a position of power.

    Something like, "Where am I?
    Why don't you check your underpants."

    What "go" means in here?

    Re: GO from a position of power.

    It means something like act. Behave as if you were in a position of power. It's slang. Apparently, the speaker is convinced that saying

    Where am I? Why don't you check your underpants.

    makes a man seem powerful.
