Confidence is to believe in yourself with right logical and methodological approach, facts and ability to prove your point.

Over confidence I think is to stick to one thing without listening to others and not being able to believe on your colleagues.

I think this is the correct time to recall the tortoise and rabbit story.

In that story, the rabbit has over confidence for that reason it loses the race.

But tortoise has confidence for that reason it won the race.

For an example, A student is preparing for his exams from the beginning. He says that 'he surely score good marks in his examination' is Confidence. But if another student is preparing at last minute says that "he too scores good marks" is Over confidence.

With example I am explaining this.

Suppose we are working with a team, so According to me,

Confidence is yeah surely we can do this (speaking positively & calmly).

Whereas.

Overconfidence is only we can do this no other people can (speaking loudly i.e. in different tone or we can say rudely also).

This emotion given in brackets also matters while answering.

Confidence is something that will help you to achieve something. Confidence is I can do this task.

But over confidence is I'm the one who will do this task.

Over confidence may lead to decrease your performance. Dreams will be only dreams. It won't come true.
