“I can’t” means I don’t want to.
CAREER & LIFE CHALLENGES
When I came to the US, I had very little. It was very hard to find a job. I called every opening in the classified ads and I really beat the streets looking for work. Finally, someone answered my calls and gave me a chance. I started out as a messenger and stuck with it. Eventually, I worked my way up to sales. It took perseverance to stick with it, but I did what I had to do to be successful.
Having a positive attitude will get you where you need to go.
