Confidence comes with knowledge and experience but over confidence comes with arrogance.

I am able to any task because I know my strength and about the work is my confidence.

But without measure, my strength and work if I say I can do this is over confidence.

In my opinion, confidence means I can do it means I can handle this situation instead of this over-confidence means I'm the only person who can handle this situation.

Ex. Imagine in any industry there are many engineers and one of them engineer say that I'm the only person who can handle every very well no one like me in the industry means he feels more proud of himself this is over-confidence.

I am able to do work is confidence, but I am the only one to do the work is over confidence. Confidence encourages the person to do work even in critical situations which remove hesitations but over confidence sinks people.

Confidence is when you say, I can do it. This statement is based on your knowledge, past experience and you can judge your capability.

Over-confidence is, when you make any statement that is based partial knowledge, experience of other people, and based on assumptions. Comparing two tasks without detailing.

Over-confident:

Over-confident is the source of demotivation. After failure with overconfident may hurt to backup. You have gone mentally disturb, victimized by people, judge by yourself. That's why your progress would be affected.

Confident:

Confident comes with your hard work and after failure may be you get disappointed but there will hope for next time. That ideology makes him a fighter.

Vishalk said: (Aug 20, 2016)  
When you are confident, you have got trust on your talents that emphasizes you to keep trying and never give up.

But once you become overconfident, you will start taking things casually and your mind develops a false notion that getting success is a sail through.

Confidence is answering the questions you are asked.

And Over-confidence is asking questions and answering it as well.

Asking for the job in an organization with knowledge of that organization. That is confidence. Yes, I can do the job here.

Asking for the job in an organization where you don't know anything about the organization. That is overconfidence. If you don't know about organization then how can you ask for the job from an organization?

Confidence is related to own knowledge and strength that is really true. And worker said I can do this job 75%.

And in over confidence, it said I can only do this job 100% because of such an ego. Such think can down our self-confidence at one time.

Confidence is real belief in one's ability.

Overconfidence is fake, a mechanism of hiding one's own self-doubt.

Confident says I can do it whereas overconfident says only I can do it.

It's a very small difference.

Confidence means a proper understanding of their strengths and weakness.

Overconfidence is a misunderstanding of their strength. That leads to failure.
