The difference is only in the belief of a person, both come from hard work but being overconfident towards something needs more passion towards it than a person can think of. It's not bad you know being overconfident, it only depends on individual perception of things as I said earlier.

Everybody have their view of perception based on their experience in life, I want to share my viewpoint on this, be ready to face any kind of situation in unfaithful and having clear thoughts on goals to implement even over distracting from people.

Overconfidence is having less knowledge of situations, behave like immature in the right kind of situation.

Confidence is something when you do care about your result and puts 100% effort to make it best but in over confidence's case you don't care about the result although might be possible to not to put any effort because of over assurance to that matter. In other words, confidence is what when you make a rough path in a walkable path and in over-confidence, you make a rough path into a slippery (over smooth) path.

Confidence is a belief and the courage that it is possible, but with full knowledge and awareness of challenges/obstacles and errors that might make the road to success not very smooth.

Overconfidence is selfish thought that with me every road is smooth, anyone else can't go through in my absence.

Confidence is something that empowers you to do something, while being overconfident might led you to neglect important thing, and you end up making mistakes.

All in all, in my thinking, Confidence says I can do it,

Whereas overconfidence says Only I'm the one who can do this.

Khushboo said: (Jun 7, 2019)  
Confidence is being comfortable in your own skin and expressing yourself without feeling insecure or nervous. It comes when one knows one's strengths as well as faults and accepts them to improve oneself.

Overconfidence is when a person 'believes' that he/she is right every single time and that there's nothing the others 'need' do, but follow him/her happily.

If the interviewer says something like, "If you can do it, there are a hundred others who can do it too. Why should we choose you and not them?".

If you say because I can do it better than others, the interviewer might twist your reply to mean that you are over-confident.

What to say in such situations? Maybe you can say "Because I'm special! You will find it during my work and never regret your choice".

Prakhar Mahamadpurkar : Right, Well said @Khushboo.

Confidence is staying calm and cool and being able to do whatever task is being assigned in a proper way.

It is being confident about oneself and having the belief of being able to do anything.

Over confidence is when someone brags about being confident in am excessive manner and it does not always lead to good results and can be self destructive.
