Sevan Matossian (00:00):

Sevan Matossian (00:05):

Martin Dcosta (00:06):

Yeah. Yeah, yeah. We’re good.

Sevan Matossian (00:10):

Good to see you. So what’s

Martin Dcosta (00:11):

Going on, man? How you say your name? Like seven, like, like, like lucky seven,

Sevan Matossian (00:14):

Like lucky seven but seven on

Martin Dcosta (00:18):

Seon. I like it

Sevan Matossian (00:19):

Seon. It’s it’s a, it’s a it’s lake and Armenia. My parents are both Armenian Armenia. This

Martin Dcosta (00:24):

Small is Armenian.

Sevan Matossian (00:26):

Okay. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Every, every good, every good man, every strong man should have a sidekick Armenian man. The, uh, the only cats that the black Panthers rolled with their, their lawyer, the only white guy they allowed in the group was their lawyer. He’s a Armenian dude.

Martin Dcosta (00:42):

He’s Armenian guy. I always say, you gotta keep, if you’re doing business, you gotta keep a good Armenian and a and a, and a quality Jew next to you.

Sevan Matossian (00:50):

For sure. I got a Jew wife and that is fucking money,

Martin Dcosta (00:53):

Bro. My wife is Jewish. Also look at us collaborating right now. I imagine I was having problems this morning because I’m using her laptop. We came to Arkansas out where I’m from and to visit my mother, my grandmother and her laptop is in Hebrew. So, so imagine when you send me the link, everything was in Hebrew. So I started clicking shit thinking it’s like the basics and everything got blocked.

Sevan Matossian (01:17):

Are, are you tripping that just some strange, a little Armenian man in, um, uh, California reaches out to you on Instagram is like, Hey, come, come on my podcast.

Martin Dcosta (01:25):

Oh bro. I was loving it. I was loving it because before I never, so many people used to ask me like, come on my show, come on my show. And then when I kind of like, look at the individuals, you kind of like, I’m like, man, you know what? I, I don’t really deal with that individual. Just looking at his post, looking at what, from what he’s saying, even if he’s supporting Trump or if he’s supporting, but, and at the same time I’m going, bro, you don’t even have quality content. You don’t have quality conversations. So when I started your style, I was like, yeah, yeah, yeah, this is, this is, this is a definitely a capital. Yes. You know, like

Sevan Matossian (01:53):

That. Awesome. You vetted me, you vetted me. Um, so I double across your Instagram account and I’m fascinated by it and I’m fascinated by it for a couple reasons. One cuz it scares the shit outta me. So those are the things that I, I, I like to lean into right. A little bit. Yes. And I was raised to be a good liberal boy to uh, um, uh, uh, you know, feel sorry for the, uh, Mexican immigrants feel sorry for the black man. And, and, and my life was so good. And even, even though my, my parents struggled, right. They’re both basically I Armenian immigrants, we lived, you know, uh, very poor, pretty damn poor. Um, but, but there’s this whole it’s, it’s this liberal mindset, right? It it’s a, there’s this disguise of you’re being sympathetic and nice it’s it’s but really you’re demeaning people. You’re demeaning people and it’s weird. And I have really good parents and nice parents. But for, I think that they’re slow to the trigger to realize, um, you know, it comes from a good place. Like, yeah,

Martin Dcosta (02:53):

Its like parents, my parents are even, they’re like blind Democrats, but I, you, you love ’em to death, you know, because it’s like, yeah, you just gotta, at this point you can’t even judge people with I at this point, when you start looking at all of the crazy things, I’m going, man. Whoever had like good foundation, like my, my parents are married over 40 plus years. So I, I come from a good background. But then when you start understanding that we rise above where they even reached. So I’m in business. Whereas my father still driving. So I leveled up and now I level my son up. So then the mindset must have, have to change. So when you look at these structures, like what my mother and them, why they vote or why they still vote Democrat, you go that’s, that’s, that’s their peak. This is where their information stopping.

Martin Dcosta (03:33):

They’re not seeking any other opposite information. So it’s like I have to be that seeker. And you know, so when I start seeking better information to better my family to be the beacon of light, to like just take us into a generational change because for me, people go left, people go, right. I just move forward. You like, I don’t, I’m not in the business of going in circle or left side, right side Democrat or, or conservative liberal. Like I, I don’t, I don’t care about all of those things. I go, the simple fact, like our children in trouble, bro, like the children are literally in trouble. So I go, you could be a Democrat and still understand that your kids are in trouble.

Sevan Matossian (04:10):

Do you think that you wouldn’t have been this passionate about these subjects if you didn’t have kids? I sometimes think that. Yeah,

Martin Dcosta (04:17):

For sure. For sure.

Sevan Matossian (04:18):

There’s this obligation. How, how, how do you make, how do you make the mind shift? Um, I’ll tell you a quick story. Just super quick. So there’s two guys walking down the sidewalk, there’s a snail on the sidewalk and one of the guys says, oh shit, I’m gonna do the good deed. And I’m gonna pick this snail up and I’m gonna set it back in the bushes. And what he doesn’t realize is he picks the snail up and he sets it back in the bushes, um, right where nail BA is. And he kills the snail. He thinks he’s doing good and helping, but really he just killed this guy. And we we’re, we live in a society full of that. We live in a society full it’s. One of the biggest problems for our children. We have this huge movement. We have these huge movements, like Asian hate BLM that they, they think that they’re helping, but they don’t understand the mechanism of the mind. And so that they’re, they’re really hurting people and we could go into that. Um, but they’re really just dividing right? Every time they say black man, they’re forcing everyone to it’s just like every time they say Trump, they’re forced, that’s a trigger word for people. They, you can’t even say Trump around something starts up in their brain, you know? And um, what’s TDA,

Sevan Matossian (05:20):

What’s TDA.

Martin Dcosta (05:22):

The TDS is called the Trump arrangement syndrome. You know like, like, cause people see that Trump sign, they just lose all aspects of just everything. You know?

Sevan Matossian (05:31):

How did you come out of it? How, how did you like make the shift? If you were raised to be a Democrat, how does someone like come start to evolve and be like, wait a second. I’m I’m not thinking clear Lee,

Martin Dcosta (05:43):

For me, it was more like just, it was not even about even politics because when I was growing up, we were like such sports oriented that you didn’t even realize like your parents were even, even looking at that side. And they, my parents are not even like big political people, so they never even talk about it. My mom was always like, you just better yourself, better yourself. You’re gonna be a superstar one day. Here’s your, you need to learn how to write. You need to learn how to read. You need to learn how to cook. So I’m from the country. So we weren’t we’re, we’re not political at all. My parents are not political at all. They just vote blue. So, so for me it was just like, when I started just becoming more independent and just being around more people because I do business and I’m doing business in Vegas, I’m doing business overseas.

Martin Dcosta (06:24):

And then you start mingling with different styles of cultures and then you start realizing, I’m just like, oh, hold on, hold on, wait a minute, wait a minute. This we’ve been taught wrong. And then when you start questioning everything, it is not even just believing anymore. You just seek your truth and everybody truth is different. And that’s what’s so that is, what’s so crazy. Like you can take someone who was a Democrat and is switching to a conservative. And the reason why he did that is not just for the simple fact that the children in trouble or that these guys are trying to feminize men. They’re they’re, they’re bringing in a whole new world that is not even the trigger. People are just so tired of just being lied to people are tired of being just bamboozled and that’s left side right side. And now people are just like just evolving. And this is where I, I, I always say like I was never even jumping in on, I, I was supporting Trump for the simplify. I’m just highly against the Clintons. You see what I’m saying? So I’m like highly against the Clintons because I’m from Arkansas. So I knew like, yo, we can’t allow the Clintons to get in there. Or we would have a Russia Ukraine in 2017.

Sevan Matossian (07:34):


Martin Dcosta (07:36):

You, you,

Sevan Matossian (07:36):

You that’s, that’s some of the scary hit on your, uh, Instagram by scary. I don’t mean it’s scary because of cuz I don’t wanna believe it. There there’s a video you put up there of um, Hillary Clinton and it shows her history and it shows that she was in a, um, as a young attorney, she defended a pedophile in 1975

Martin Dcosta (07:57):

And knew he was a pedophile.

Sevan Matossian (07:59):

Yeah. And it shows her laughing about the fact that she got the court to believe him and, and uh, that shit’s hard. That’s that shit’s really hard to process.

Martin Dcosta (08:09):

It’s it’s, it’s a big, it’s a big horse pill to swallow. And a lot of people are refusing to take those pills, you know? And it’s like,

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

You dig, do you research the shit out of that before you post that? Because I’m thinking to myself, like, imagine if someone said that like there’s a hierarchy of shit you wanna be accused of. Right. Like, like right. Like a few years ago it used to suck to be called racist. Now it kind of doesn’t matter cuz it’s just, it’s been UBI ubiquitous, but now you don’t wanna be called a pedophile. Like really? Like that one still is bad.

Martin Dcosta (08:39):

Yeah. Yeah. No. To be honest, to be called a pedophile nowadays is like almost they’re they’re like normalizing it. Have you seen those flyers? Pedophiles need love to pedophiles are humans.

Sevan Matossian (08:51):


Martin Dcosta (08:52):

Bro. I’m telling man, Google it, look it up. They got flyers out. Like pedophiles need is like pedophile is not like, uh, I think what is it called? I think it’s like PED love. It’s a brochure. Like check it out. Like there’s a whole organization that is pushing that pedophiles are human beings and they’re not criminals. They’re not like, like they’re like, okay, sexualizing, like children. It’s a whole operation.

Sevan Matossian (09:14):

Yeah. I, I did. I, it it’s, it’s so crazy. I did see something where they were basically saying they were trying to extend this thing. Like we have to accept everyone for what they want their sexual appetite. I saw this thing where like you have to accept men who want men and women who want women and then you have to, and then they were kind of creeping into that space where you have to accept adults who want children.

Martin Dcosta (09:37):

Yeah. It’s it’s it’s it’s so it’s so creepy at this point because it’s like, they normalize the most weirdest thing. And then when you start looking at the people who are looking at the weird things, it’s like, yo, this is weird. Now we are like homophobia. We’re like, like transphobia we’re like now

Sevan Matossian (09:54):

Can play it. Yeah, yeah,

Martin Dcosta (09:55):

Yeah. Yeah. And I’m like, yo, what are you, why are you doing? And a 360 on this. There’s no grown ass man should be having a thousands of pictures of naked children on his laptop. Like why are you okay in that? And that’s why I, I, I just, my, my, my passion comes because of the children and I have kids and I’m going, listen,

Sevan Matossian (10:12):

How many kids do you have?

Martin Dcosta (10:14):

I have three. So if I’m going, if I’m not going to see the victory, then the, the best thing I can do as a father is make sure that I blaze the trail. And if we blaze a proper trail and they’re following in proper good footsteps, they can create their own footsteps, which will still mimic mines, but it’ll be a more evolved. And for me, I think the biggest issue is the wealth gap. So when you speak of the elites or the, the, the individuals that everybody, Hey, just the evil government, these guys money is way longer than the average individual that is out there speaking the truth.

Sevan Matossian (10:50):

Okay. I don’t have a why. I don’t have an issue with the wealth gap. Why do you have an issue with the wealth gap?

Martin Dcosta (10:55):

Because the wealth gap, I think personally keeps a lot of individuals from truly growing because they’re not educated. And once you’re educated, you can make educated decisions that will financially benefit you. And the reason why the wealth gap is so big, because most people don’t read anymore. They

Sevan Matossian (11:11):

Just, but why is it? But maybe I misunderstanding, but are you against how much money Bezos has you wanna take some of his money? Oh no, no,

Martin Dcosta (11:18):

No, no. Okay. I’m an entrepreneur. Make your money. I’m saying individuals who are complaining about those individuals should get their money up versus

Sevan Matossian (11:27):

Oh yes, yes, yes. This

Martin Dcosta (11:29):

Is the wealth gap. I’m saying like, there’s such a big difference in the say just from me to just the, the average individual next to me. Whereas they’re shooting for an income a year. I’ll make it in a month. Right. You see cause of the mindset, like the whole mindset is different. So when people start talking about issues, like for an example, when the pandemic, so

Sevan Matossian (11:49):

You’re talking about also personal accountability.

Martin Dcosta (11:51):


Sevan Matossian (11:52):

Don’t, don’t don’t hate Bezos. Don’t hate Branson, go get yours,

Martin Dcosta (11:55):

Go get yours, go get yours. And if you’re not creative at this point, then you’re gonna be with the masses anyway. So when people start saying, man, the vaccines, the mandates, and they start speaking, all of those things, I go, man, I don’t feel that pressure. I will give that pressure to my people if I was going along with it. So everybody in my operation, nobody felt like, like mandates, nobody felt like, oh my God, I was gonna lose my job. Nobody felt like that. And I have over 30 twos or like, like, like, like, like salesman. So imagine, so it, it, it’s all about, I always say like having the right mindset as a leader and properly leading the way now you can be manipulating people. People have numbers. Everybody has a ticket for me, I’m a check writer and that’s where I stand at. And I tell people, listen, I don’t do business unless I can write the check. And if I can’t write the check, let’s just have a proper conversation. We can, we can brainstorm. You can get some great ideas. I can get some great ideas and we can keep it pushing, you know? But most people, when they try to complain about something, they’re not doing the proper basic steps to even get to where the actual solution is. You know, that’s what I mean by that wealth gap.

Sevan Matossian (13:05):

Um, did you, did you, do you remember the last time you voted Democrat?

Martin Dcosta (13:09):

Oh, I never voted Democrat. I, I just, I, I, first time I ever voted was for Trump.

Sevan Matossian (13:14):


Martin Dcosta (13:14):

First time I ever voted was for Trump and I always tell people, they go, well, why you never vote for one? I was, I was never really in the country because I was playing overseas.

Sevan Matossian (13:22):

Oh, what were you playing?

Martin Dcosta (13:23):

So I was, I, I played in Argentina. I played in QAR. I was over there in Philippines. I was like Basketball.

Sevan Matossian (13:31):

Oh yeah. You have an amazing physique. You still training hard.

Martin Dcosta (13:36):

Oh yeah. Yeah. I still get it. So I went from basketball, Tom martial arts, because I was never successful in basketball because I was always on like losing teams. So being a professional, everybody was to be happy, but I’m like always on these,

Sevan Matossian (13:51):

That’s not the mindset of accountable person saying you were, you weren’t successful cause you on losing team

Martin Dcosta (13:56):

That. So I’m like bro, like, and imagine being a point guard, they’re always pointing the finger. So I was like, yo man, how can I, how can I change this? Because I’m feeling like, and I was young. So I was never really even being able to accept it. So I was always finding it because of the ego. When I went into martial arts, I was a one-on-one. It went from a team sport to one on one. And I immediately became a champion. I immediately became a champion within like six months. I won an amateur world title and movie tie. And within a year I’m like fighting with Chuck Norris and things like, like fighting for Chuck. No. So I immediately felt successful, but it created a whole nother energy because I felt like I didn’t need people anymore, you know?

Sevan Matossian (14:34):

Yeah. Oh, you,

Martin Dcosta (14:36):

You see

Sevan Matossian (14:37):

What I wanted to get at? Yes. Yeah. Yeah. How old are you?

Martin Dcosta (14:41):

I’m 43.

Sevan Matossian (14:42):

Okay. I’m 49.

Martin Dcosta (14:44):

Nice man. That’s what’s up? I like that beer bro. Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (14:48):

It’s it’s kinda new. It’s kind of new. Some of my friends were growing up. My younger buddies were growing out. These big ones. I was like, all right, motherfuckers, I’m get you Throw some shit out. Okay. So cuz I was gonna circle back on that. So that is fascinating. Your, when you, the martial arts brought you to a point of some personal accountability and personal re responsibility, it was like, oh shit, it’s not, who am I gonna blame for this shit?

Martin Dcosta (15:14):

Exactly, exactly. And that’s where I started going. You know what? It’s just me, my opponent and the referee. And once they close,

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

I keep telling people I’m 49. Sorry. I just had my birthday. I’m 50. Now the comments are blowing up saying I’m 50. I’m 50. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Get the fuck off my back. Thank you. In the peanut gallery.

Martin Dcosta (15:33):


Sevan Matossian (15:33):

Sorry. I interrupted.

Martin Dcosta (15:35):

No it’s OK man. So it, it, it was more like when I, when I, as a fighter, it was like, I got the joy of saying like, oh man, I received Victor and I did it by myself. But then you start realizing you’re not truly by yourself. You’re really with the team, but you’re performing. You’re you’re you’re charge of the performer. So I took that mentality and I moved it from fighting to business because I eventually realized I had the same energy as a basketball player because I was like, listen, I’m still not getting paid. What I think I’m worth. And you guys are making negotiations for me when I’m the fucking fighter. Like, why are you guys negoti? What you guys are gonna pay me when I’m the fighter, I’m gonna tell you what I want. And if you want me to fight and represent your organization, then we are gonna shake hands.

Martin Dcosta (16:21):

But it was always like, yo, this is what you’re gonna fight for. This is your purse. This is who you’re gonna fight. This is the day you’re gonna fight. This is the gloves you’re gonna wear. And I need you guys to sign right here. And I’m like, well, wait a minute. What, what is this? Why, why, why is this? Why is this? Oh, don’t, don’t, don’t worry about that. You, you see what I’m saying? Because they just want you to fight. And then I started realizing the real money was in training fighters because you don’t take damage and you get the same amount of money. So I just, I imagine I was a three time world champion cause him and that him and that amateur title in there, I, I just got to my mom, my house. So she pulled out my amateur title belt girl from like 2006 right now.

Sevan Matossian (16:58):

And what was your, what was your discipline? What was your martial arts?

Martin Dcosta (17:00):

I was in movie tie and then I, I was movie tie kickboxing, and then I got started doing jujitsu. I started learning the, all around the board. I took up K mcg, God weapons trainers. So I started doing hand to hand combat. I started teaching weapons training. So in my, this is my first title and like from like 2006 and uh, and I think it was in Des Moines, Iowa. Yeah. It was like an amateur kickboxing title. And I went to support my friends and then they was like, listen, bro, you should fight. And I was like, no, bro, I ain’t, I ain’t, I ain’t getting into all of that shit, bro. I’m just now started training. And they was like, bro, you should fight. And soon as I got out there and man, I got my first knockout ever. And I, I felt like I dunked on Michael Jordan for a game winner bro.

Martin Dcosta (17:44):

So it’s like, it’s so crazy. How, when I realized like as a fighter, like how long can you keep fighting? How long can you stay a champion? How long can you keep just beating people up? When, when you, when your, when your, when your energy is so much more. So when I started teaching, I found love with teaching children. And when I started teaching children, I started a kids program which literally blew up. And so most people know me from my kids program, which was used to be called little strikers. So I was teaching kids from ages three to 12, the beginning stages of fitness, martial arts and obedience. And I think right now we are in trouble with our children because there’s no one giving them obedience. Like they have no, no, no authority figures. And then when the police gets into them to give them authority, they, there, there there’s your rebel right there. You see? And so that journey took me into to India. I lived in India seven years because

Sevan Matossian (18:41):

Where in India,

Martin Dcosta (18:42):

I was in HBA, Mumbai, new deli, gut garage. I was like all over India cuz I was teaching military hand to and combat.

Sevan Matossian (18:50):

Did you ever spend any time in Vai

Martin Dcosta (18:53):

VA NAI? No. No.

Sevan Matossian (18:55):


Martin Dcosta (18:56):

Not bar NAI. I was just again, out from Punjab to Carla. We

Sevan Matossian (19:01):

Did all, it must have been quite the site there.

Martin Dcosta (19:03):

Oh man. Let me bro. When I dropped down over there, people were looking like that Jeno scene when Jamie Fox was on the horse, like people were looking at me like that, like

Sevan Matossian (19:15):

Yeah. When you took your shirt, did you walk around a lot in like tank tops or shirtless though? Oh

Martin Dcosta (19:19):

Yeah. I, I walked around, I walked around like shirtless for like literally like the first two months. And then I started understanding that I need to

Sevan Matossian (19:26):

Like people coming up and touching you. Right? Like that people just running

Martin Dcosta (19:28):

Up. It was like this like, like yeah. It Indiana Jones scene. I swear.

Sevan Matossian (19:33):

Yeah, I know. Yeah. I, I was there, I’m a little five, five Armenian and I, I went there in my early thirties and I, and I still get at it a lot, but I, and I was wearing a warriors tank top in VA AIE and I was like, people fucking started wanting to touch me and shit. Oh

Martin Dcosta (19:48):


Sevan Matossian (19:49):

All right. I gotta get dressed. Yeah. Yeah. I’m like, holy fuck. What the fuck is going on here?

Martin Dcosta (19:54):

Yeah man, it was, it was crazy. But then I, I, I started realizing like I started understanding energy when I was in India.

Sevan Matossian (20:02):


Martin Dcosta (20:02):

You know, and when you start understanding energy, you start understanding how to make decisions with different people. A according to their energy versus their words and versus their emails and versus their proposals. And when I started learning about energy, that that changed my whole vibration. And I started understanding from low, low Cho energy to high chocolate energy from people. And then I started putting that, that, that skillset into leaders that we were listening to. And at that time had Obama here. And I started saying, listen, this guy speaks extremely well. This guy can manipulate a whole slew of people. He has everybody on hope. And at that time in a martial, in martial arts, my trainer was telling me, we don’t hope for nothing. We don’t hope for shit. Hope is for the, we, we make shit happen. And then you got your president saying, yes we can.

Martin Dcosta (20:56):

Yes we can you remember that mantra? Yes we can. And everybody started hoping for change. Everybody started hoping for change. And then he got up there and he spoked everybody and he says, we’re gonna allow gay marriages. We’re gonna allow sexualizing your kids in, in school. And then he just started all of this weird shit. And everybody was like, yes we can. Yes we can. Yes we can. And I said, that’s what it is. When people start speaking from high energy vibrations, with low vibration intentions. And that’s where the world is so corrupt. And I go, man, everybody knows our government is evil. Everybody knows the government is, it’s not new. What, what baffles me is that people still comply to it. And as a fighter and as an individual, as a warrior of God, I say, man, I have to protect the children. So we have to plant the proper seed in the ear. And once

Sevan Matossian (21:48):

Yeah, go back to the energy thing for a minute. Tell me about energy. Tell like how do you, how does someone go from, um, you know, being an American kid, a basketball, having fun, um, whatever you did as, as a young man, I’m assuming the stuff that all of us did, chase girls workout. How do you, why aren’t you like all this end energy shit is mumbo jumbo.

Martin Dcosta (22:10):

Well, for the simple fact, it was like, cuz you, you, you become like, you can ignore something for so long. But then when it’s like a part of you, like, cuz that’s what we are. We’re energy with frequency. We and we, and, and when I would go into a room, people would say, man, he lights that room up, man. This guy lights that room up. And they would say this from a kid, but I never really, truly kinda understood it. And then when I started like being promote, like approached by colleges and stuff like that, then I knew like everybody wanted me. Everybody wanted me to be that guy. Everybody wanted me to lift the team up. So no matter what team I was on, whether we were like one in 27, they were saying, Martin, I need you to pick the guys up. I need you to lead the prayer in the locker room. I need you to motivate the guys. The guys are down right now. So I want you to come and practice. I won’t even show up cause everybody’s mad at me. So everybody always wanted me to be that little light, you know? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (22:58):

So I it’s obvious on your Instagram, by the way, you have an amazing smile. And even when shit’s like hopeless, you’re like talking to the people like, um, it’s good. You’re still centered in you.

Martin Dcosta (23:12):

Oh yeah. Fact.

Sevan Matossian (23:12):

Even when you’re saying the worst shit ever, you’re it’s still, you, you, you don’t get all crazy.

Martin Dcosta (23:17):

I don’t get all crazy man. And that’s where I, I, and I, when I started thinking like, oh man, like what, what, why, why, why is people, why, why has that lighted me? You know, what, what is the difference between me, him? You start questioning that. I realized it’s God, God is in all of us. And for those who have a, a true relationship and a true like understanding that man, he is within us. We don’t, I don’t look outside for nothing. Everything that I need to indulge in, I need to create or manifest the miracle starts right there. Oh

Sevan Matossian (23:50):


Martin Dcosta (23:51):

You see? And so when I started understanding energy, I started understanding like, man, every decision that most people like conjure up in their brains, they’re not even manifesting, like are not they’re manifest. They’re not even understanding that in itself is a miracle because that comes from like, like energy frequency things firing off in your brain. And then we’re talking naturally like we’re we have had no conversation. This is a freestyle conversation for the audience. Like, and we’re, and we’re, we’re like, you’re asking questions and I’m and we’re going back and forth. That’s energy. Now you could ask me something that could ruffle my feather and then the energy shifts you see. Yeah. But for me, I go by being an energy guy. I never give anyone, not even my wife, not even my kids, not my business partners, nobody. I never give them access to change my energy. You see? So I’m always consciously

Sevan Matossian (24:43):

You, you, you don’t allow that.

Martin Dcosta (24:45):

I never allow it. I never allow it. I can get upset. I have things that bother me. I’m human. But at the end of the day, like I’m, I’m always like this. I’m always like this for the simple fact, people are watching. Children are watching and this is where you learn. You learn from, from revelations. You understand, like, I always tell people like people are scared of revelation. That that’s how you like, God reveals your true purpose through revelations. And people are thinking revelations from the Bible. Even the Bible is manipulated. So I’m not talking about that revelation. I’m talking about my individual journey as revelations. You know, I made some shitty decisions in my life that put me in shitty situations and it was my revelation of learning and bettering myself not to put myself in that situation again.

Sevan Matossian (25:30):

What is that word? What does that word mean? Revelation?

Martin Dcosta (25:35):

I would even break it down to like your, your story, you know, like, like most people experience, like I would say it was even experience, you know?

Sevan Matossian (25:43):

Yeah. It says a, a, a surprising and previously unknown fact, especially one that is made in a dramatic way, the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to. So, so it’s tri for you. It’s, it’s something like trial and error,

Martin Dcosta (25:57):

Facts, facts. It’s just like that. And, and then, and, and it’s also having a proper risk factor. Like a lot of people don’t understand if you don’t understand risk management, this is why most people are not even been having a, a eye or ear to like digital currency. They don’t have any knowledge of risk management or hour time, like value. Like so many people are lost in the sauce when it comes to that. And I go, when you understand your own risk management, you’re not gonna put yourself in the situation. Like I understand risk management. So I won’t be out there trying to sell drugs and talk shit about someone who is working at McDonald’s when the guy is working at McDonald’s will be in the end of the time more profitable.

Sevan Matossian (26:38):

Yeah. Uh, risk assessment too. Right. Risk management and risk assessment.

Martin Dcosta (26:42):

Yes. Yes. And, and so many people are so like, like again, they learn from the streets, they learn from bad individuals or that I would always say, when you learn from men who have not evolved themselves, then your evolvement revolves around what they, what they show you. You know? And so me being overseas, I, it would allow it to immediately allow me to see different men and how they act and how they were raised. And like, when I went to India, I was shocked to see 22 year old businessmen with family here. I, we, I, at 20, I had already had a kid. You imagine that at 20, my son is 22 and I’m 43.

Sevan Matossian (27:22):

Wow. Wow, wow.

Martin Dcosta (27:23):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. So we are doing business together right now. So imagine that, you know, so it’s like a lot of people. So I was forced to become a father, like super quick, forced to like E like, like not be in the clubs, not be doing all of the BS and just always trying to better myself because they were always watching, you know,

Sevan Matossian (27:44):

Are you shadow band?

Martin Dcosta (27:45):

Always. Always. Always. Yeah. Yeah. Always. Okay. Always.

Sevan Matossian (27:50):

Um, I’m going, so I’m gonna change your, um, your name here. Uh, what, what’s your Instagram account at?

Martin Dcosta (27:58):

Uh, Mr. Holistic.

Sevan Matossian (27:59):

Okay. And no 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, right?

Martin Dcosta (28:02):

No, no, no. That’s yeah. My 8, 8, 8. I have eights on my wrist. You see like, like, like that

Sevan Matossian (28:07):

How’s that is that right? So if you wanna find this guy, by the way, so I could, I had to go yesterday. Um, when I was digging through his Instagram account, I couldn’t find him on my computer, no matter how much Google search I used. So then I had to go back to my phone, find him on my phone and then text it to my computer to pull it up. Like I’m sh shadow band. And by the way, no one texts me or DM me and say, you’re not shadow band. You just have restrictions. It’s all the same shit to me. Yeah.

Martin Dcosta (28:31):

Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (28:34):

I like when people are like, you’re not shadow band anymore. I found you. It’s like, dude, it’s revolving. They let in just little ti, they just let in a few people at a time,

Martin Dcosta (28:40):

I, I call it the Dave Jones sensor locker.

Sevan Matossian (28:45):

Why is that?

Martin Dcosta (28:46):

Because you know how in the pirates, we like, I’m gonna throw you in. You know? So I go for the people who are speaking the truth, they throw us all down in the censorship locker.

Sevan Matossian (28:55):

Why don’t they just kick us off? What are they waiting?

Martin Dcosta (28:57):

This is what I said, just throw me off. Like, why are you even tip toing? Like, you know, I’m not gonna stop my language. You know, I’m not gonna stop saying what I’m saying, because

Sevan Matossian (29:04):

Why don’t you just kick us off? I don’t get

Martin Dcosta (29:06):

It. Just kick me off. And, and this is what I always say. Like,

Sevan Matossian (29:09):

They, I, I don’t wanna be kicked off. Don’t get me wrong, but it makes no sense. Like,

Martin Dcosta (29:12):

It makes no sense. It makes most sense. I remember I got on, I have over 179,000 followers on TikTok, all organic. I’ve never paid social media, anything. Everything is organic. So imagine I get you

Sevan Matossian (29:26):

Are fucking moron. If you pay someone to get your followers on social media

Martin Dcosta (29:29):

By exactly. I, I, I think that’s,

Sevan Matossian (29:31):

That is fucking insanity.

Martin Dcosta (29:32): It’s it’s insane. So imagine TikTok reaches out to me. Oh, we love your content. As a, as a, as a, as a, as a platform, we’re looking for more, more adult content, because nothing with children was like dancing on there at first. So they started promoting like Mr. Holistic, we need listen. And they started making me go viral on TikTok. And then when I started going against their narrative and they started saying, listen, you’re a community guideline. You’re a walking community guideline violation.
