Confidence is that when we feel sure about our actions without fear because fear can destroy our dreams.

On the other hand, Overconfidence is an excessive amount of belief in our abilities which may lead to the wrong decision.

According to me, Confidence can build you but Overconfidence can destroy you.

Confidence is when we feel sure about our actions and make the right decisions. We believe in our ability to do something and have faith in ourselves. On the other hand, overconfidence is excessive belief in our abilities, overlooking the fact that we can be wrong too.

There is just a minute difference between confidence and overconfidence.

If I tell I can mean that is my confidence. But if I tell I only can means that is my overconfidence.

Confidence is "I have the ability to crack the interview".

Over-confidence is "I will definitely crack the interview

One should have confidence, not overconfidence.

Confidence deals with how you should approach a job or task with courage and make sure to complete the task with limited time. But overconfidence sometimes eradicates all the performance as well as job schedule which will give a great impact on your corresponding activities.

So, have proper patience and do not go beyond your confidence level.
