I personally feel that slight difference in confidence and overconfidence that first believes oneself as capable and latter is to believe oneself as best and other less.

That's all.

Confidence comes from the understanding that success will be always accompanied by failure.

Confidence is the attitude of a person towards a job to which he or she is assigned irrespective of the results.

Over confidence is that one always expecting good results.

Well, sir according to me if the person who should have some goals and the content within the goal should be predetermined for him that is the indication of confidence.

On the other hand, any of the person who should have some goals but he doesn't know that how to execute that goal and how to perform on that goal but still he is doing that work that is the indication of overconfidence.

'Confidence' shows the attitude of a person who thoroughly believes, "No pain, no gain. " On the contrary, 'Over confidence' is an attitude of a person that he won't drown in the sea of reality undoubtedly even when he does not know how to swim.

Tanmay said: (Aug 31, 2017)  
Confidence implies believing in yourself that "I can do it. " but at the same time not losing any chance to improve on yourself, taking advice from appropriate sources and persons and hard work towards one's goal. On the other hand, over confidence makes one believe that they are on the peak and can never fall. They think that there's nothing more to improve on yourself. That's where over-confidence results in fall.

There exists a very slight boundary between the two but its plays one of the most vital roles in deciding one's future!
