To feel secure and happy with yourself, a sense of stability deep-rooted to the core is what self-sufficiency is all about. On a superficial level, it’s like secure confidence — it’s an assessment of oneself as a commendable and respectable individual. In any case, it goes further than secure confidence, in that it’s a psychological and emotional state — that is, it’s an inclination of essential completeness and prosperity.
As opposed to suspecting as far as high or low — likewise with confidence — it appears to be more fitting to utilize the terms powerless and solid for independence. Individuals with solid independence aren’t excessively worried about others’ assessments of them. Insults don’t influence them so much since they have a profound established feeling of their own value. On the other hand, recognition and fault don’t influence them either, so they never become excessively diverted with their own favorable luck or affectedness.
The equivalent applies to antagonistic or positive life occasions: individuals with solid independence are more averse to be destabilized by them. This doesn’t imply that they’re barbaric beasts who don’t feel any feeling, simply that they have a solid interior focal point of gravity, prone to be aloof and philosophical about negative occasions and to bob back rapidly. Their internal feeling of prosperity and fulfillment implies that they’re stronger in the changes of life.
Early life of Cortlen Delva
To achieve that level of self-sufficiency, you need to face a lot of hardships in life. Cortlen Delva was born and raised in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York City. His father was from Haiti, and his mother was from Jamaica. While growing up, his mother got separated from his father. He had no father-figure while growing up, no one to support him, and no one to guide him. He had to earn whatever he wanted, and nothing was handed to him. To say that those years were a struggle would be an understatement.
As an adolescent adult, Cortlen found himself homeless, While he was in the shelter for some period, he used to visit her sister’s house to take showers and change his clothes in the mornings and the evenings before returning back to the shelter. No one knew what he was going through or that he was homeless. One day a friend came to Cortlen Delva and offered him a job. That job was about being a truck driver. He used to work as a truck driver in the day and sleep in the same truck at night. This was his routine until one day; he went through a disastrous car accident in North Carolina. He was driving through the mountains when a pickup truck came speeding around, leading me to swerve his truck and turning it over. He suffered severe head and leg injuries.
Road to Music
While working as a truck driver, he saved enough money to get himself a place to rest and sleep. The road to music begins in 2010. However, at that time, he was not really serious about it. He started working as a DJ and started making beats with his friend Dexter. Over time he got better at making beats. He started rapping with it, as well. When he saw that people around him started liking his beats and rapping, he started taking more interest in it. He slowly started developing a small fanbase in his neighborhood.
This is how his journey to self-sufficiency began. Now Cortlen Delva is an independent artist, professionally known as G-Pak, just like Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and many more. He went from being homeless to being someone who has a new music video coming out on 24th December 2020. He also has planned a new record for next year. He has new music that he will be releasing in January; his first Brooklyn drill record, followed by a tropical type record. The songs are basically about being flamboyant and flashy ways, and the second song is basically about having a good time with the ladies. Apart from that, he started his own record label by Serie music, LLC in 2019 and had his own studio. To him, this is his biggest achievement. He actually produced his first professional song released on ditto music titled “this is it,” featuring Brooke Lynne. He would love to work with artists like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown, Meli, and Rihanna in the future.
