Confidence is yes I can do this.
Over confidence is I am the only person who can do this.

In other words,

Confident people may say I will achieve my goal one day.
But overconfident people may say I will definitely achieve my goal.

Confident people do not try to prove anything to someone. They do not seek attention from others. In Contrast, over-confident people are usually loud and noisy, they speak forcefully and loudly to prove their point. Confident people are not afraid to speak the truth. However, over confident people like to make fun of others. Confident people are always authentic in expression. By comparison, over confident people can sense the self-doubt that lurks behind the over-confident person.

Amir Ansari said: (May 8, 2017)  
Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in one's self.

The overconfidence effect is a well-established bias in which a person's subjective confidence in his or her judgments is reliably greater than the objective accuracy of those judgements, especially when confidence is relatively high. Overconfidence is one example of a miscalibration of subjective probabilities.

Confidence means what we boost ourself to do a task and by boosting ourself we will get more confidence.

Confidence will not get from others, it will get from when we keep (re-doing) doing to achieve anything we want.

Overconfidence will get from those who have more talent better than us.

Those who have confidence they do the task in their real life with reality. But those who have overconfidence they will assume in their mind that I will complete this better than others and only I can complete.

Simply, confidence leads to success.

Overconfidence leads to fail.

Confidence is when you do something that knows you can do it at hundred percent (100%) and you do it efficiently and effectively without having to face mistake or failure. While Over Conference is trying to do something you know well in more hundred percent 100% (100%+) and you started eagerly, proudly and arrogantly but you fail to do it as required.

If I tell you, I've preformed well in the interview and you may select me for the job. It's confidence. And.

If I tell you that I've performed better than anyone else and no matter if you select me or not I'm smart enough to get a job at any other place, I think that would be overconfidence.

THERE IS A FINE LINE BETWEEN CONFIDENCE AND OVER CONFIDENCE.

A STRONG MINDSET TO DO A JOB PERFECTLY WITH YOUR TEAM IS CONFIDENCE.

WHEREAS THINKING I AM THE BEST IN THE TEAM IS OVER CONFIDENCE.

BECAUSE YOU ARE CORRECT DOESN'T MEAN THEY ARE WRONG.

Sir, confidence is the right thing in which a person thinks of doing a work with not having the sense of arrogance in himself.

Whereas over-confidence is a wrong thing in which a person thinks that he is the only person who is right for any kind of job given to him. He also has the sense of arrogance and in most cases, it leads to failure.
