Marcus, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I had a conversation with a good friend of mine who was going through a tough time, and he couldn't see himself being a positive person. Unfortunately, I was sick for a month, and it kept me away from playing internationally and stopped me from working and being out doing stuff and keeping active. During this time I realised how things could go downwards and you've no control over the scenario. I made him realise day by day that by being positive and seeing the bigger picture that you can always overcome negative scenarios! Since then I've made him see things in a different light especially when things arent going well
