"Only" - This single word creates the difference between confidence and over confidence.

For example:

I can do it - Confidence.

Only I can do it - Over Confidence.

Not a lot of different between confidence and over confidence. Because confidence is first part of talent and over confidence is second part of good hard work strength.

Excess of anything is not good.

Taking about something which is within your limits or capabilities is Confidence because you know your strengths, your abilities.

But talking about something by crossing your limits is Over Confidence.

Suppose you people hire me, If you ask can you do this job, If I say first I should get the job, then after training and you assigning job, I will be able to do the job. This is confidence. Rather if I say of of course, it's either I'm unbelievably talented or just beaming over confidence.

Confidence is the believe that we can do a particular task after analyzing it. Overconfidence is also the same, it just lacks that analyzing part.

I don't think there's much difference that can cause an impact to the person showing confidence as in simply confidence or over of it. Its just that confidence comes from the information of the elements that you already know to build up your way to the result, which can be a multipath. And at the counterpart, over confidence at certain particular, comes from repetitive same result that you had already done in the past and you are going to do it the same way this time.

Sir I think confidence is when you have a goal, you work hard for that and believe that I can do it. But when you do nothing for your goal and still believe that I can do it then this is called over confidence.

Basically I don't pay attention to the terms confidence and over confidence, but will do any kind of work with concentration. Those two are the terms associated with those who worry about the results all the time, but if we do a thing with concentration, good results automatically gets delivered.

Confidence is based on Facts and Figures but over confidence is based on speculation.

First, we analyze that work, then decided we can do that work this is confidence.

Without analyzing that work then decided we can do that work this is overconfidence. There is a small difference between confidence and overconfidence. Confidence means I can do that over confidence means Only I can do that.

This small difference leads to change one's life totally. In life we put confidence towards you, then you can achieve anything, with over confidence one can achieve nothing.

Let me quote an example:

Suppose I wrote exam very well. If someone asks me how the exam was then if I say I will get 90% for sure. Its confidence because you know how you wrote.

But if I say I get top in the class or college. Then its over confidence because I don't know how the rest of the college wrote the exam. May be some one in the class is better student than me.

So, knowing your abilities is confidence and thinking that you are the only capable person is over confidence (without knowing the others potential, never underestimate anyone).

Confidence is when you trust yourself and believe you can do something without anyone frightening you or changing your mind.

Over-confidence is when you become sure of yourself and don't let other's have the chance to tell you their opinion of something and won't accept advise from anyone.

If any person have accurate knowledge of any object then he is confident.

If any person have extra knowledge of an object then he is overconfident.

If some one is confident means he is a having very positive attitude, and thinking towards the job. He is a self motivated and a hard and smart worker, who having a ability to get success.

And over confident makes a person irresponsible, un-punctual, lazy, last but not the least very very egoistic and selfish, they never feels respect for others work and achievement.

Confidence means I can do this work.
And.
Overconfidence means I can only do this work.

Confidence describes your hard work and belief in yourself.
While,
Overconfidence describes the negative attitude in you and thinking all other people are not even matched to your level.
