In your initial post, think about a time in your life where you tried to persuade someone to do something. Keep in mind that this doesn’t have to be a situation that was a full-blown argument–it can be something as simple as convincing a friend to go to a specific restaurant for lunch–and it doesn’t have to be a situation where you “won” the other person over either. 

Need two fully developed paragraphs. First paragraph, describe the moment of persuasion . Second paragraph, explain why you felt like that moment of persuasion was either successful or unsuccessful.
