Recently, CEO Satya Nadella shared his story of self-confidence. He as the CEO has an old relationship with the city of Hyderabad, India where he was brought up. He admitted that his self-confidence got built up due to this city. He explained that as a young cricket school player, the team skipper put faith in him to go ahead and bowl. His self-confidence got boosted when the team captain put the trust in him. In a game, he was initially an expensive bowler and gave away many runs. Later in the game he got wickets due to the confidence placed in him. The built up confidence has continued in life so that he could reach where he is today as the CEO of Microsoft.
