The difference between confidence and overconfidence is that word (over),

That over could land you in disaster or it gonna help you in your promotion very early like cricket over.

Confidence makes a persons comfortable and allows him to express my skills without getting insecure and nervous.

Whereas Overconfidence comes when the person thinks that he thinks that he know every fact better than others. Sometimes we cross our limits in overconfidence which leads to failure.

There is a very narrow line between confidence and over-confidence.

Confidence is that I can do it.

And the other hand overconfidence is that on a body can do it better than me, only I can do it.

Confidence is based on Facts and Figures but overconfidence is based on speculation. Suppose I wrote exam very well. If someone asks me how the exam was then if I say I will get 90% for sure. It's confidence because you know how you wrote.

But if I say I get top in the class or college. Then it's over confidence because I don't know how the rest of the college wrote the exam. Maybe someone in the class is the better student than me.

Srikant : Nice.

Gourav Gupta : Nice one.

Confidence means I can do this work. I will give my best in given work.

Overconfidence means when you feel only I can do this and start negotiating other people and when you think it is very easy I can do it easily and losing your time and finally you feel difficulty, at last, that's all because of your over confidence.

If I say I can do this work means that's confidence.

If I say I am the only person who can do this work means that's over confidence.

I think the distance between confidence and over confidence is very small.

There is 2 level of confidence.

Upper is overconfidence, and another is confidence.

Once we have OVER confidence, if we fail over it then we will come to confidence.

And, on the other hand, if we have only confidence, then fail we move down towards failure. So Always be Over Confident.

Confidence is good, but when it's changed into arrogance i.e. called overconfident. We know arrogant person never be the success so, confidence is the way of success and overconfidence is the interruption of success. This is the main difference.
