Sanjana Das Burman said: (Feb 15, 2019)  
Confidence is an innate virtue in every individual. It is one of the building blocks of one's personality.

Now, coming to the question asked; confidence is when you know you are capable enough for any kind of work. Most importantly, it's when you believe in yourself. Overconfidence is when you feel that you're better than other, which is self destructive in some circumstances.

When you do practice something you feel very much confident, then you will give your 100 percent. On any task. But when you know that you will do the best among all of them then that is called the over confidence.

First of all, we should know the origin of confidence is information which has facts, figure, logic's etc.

Confidence: having knowledge, facts, figure, logic on the opinion of a person.

Eg: I will try to play good game and I will try to win the game.

Overconfidence: I will play good game and I will win the game.

Considering that your competitors are not good in game is blunder.

Confidence comes after experiencing successful accomplishment of assignments which motivates for taking up more challenges.

Confidence is that something you believe in yourself too, i.e. I can do it in a secure way, not an arrogant way.

While overconfidence is that in the person misjudge our skills, values and opinion simple we can say that " only I can do it " no other people can do it.

Confidence is something which always gives us the strength to do whatever we are going to do just like umbrella don't protect us fully from rain but help us to walk in the rain.

Over confidence is something thinking about ourselves so above and there is only you and you is so best. Although think positive is a bright side but when it says about only me its a negative side. Because there are many who are much better than us we have to learn from them and those who are backward we have to help them.

When we put in efforts towards making our goal reality with positive attitude that's called confidence.

But when we don't put in our efforts don't utilise available resources even then dream about success that's called overconfidence.

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 'overconfidence'.

Confidence is get me up in a critical situation but Over confidence is put me down in a easy or considerable situation.

Over confidence kills the confidence because over confidence have too much of ego and selfishness so we lost best persons and best movements in our life.

There is a very thin line difference between confidence and overconfidence.

When a person has confidence he/she says like yes, I can do anything for this.
But when he/she says like I only can do this, is a showcase of overconfidence.

Which is not good because everyone should keep their confidence in themselves, not on others.

Confidence means capabilities to do something good or you can see something good in every condition. And believed on ourself.

But overconfidence means you think that only I can do that work nobody can do it better than me. Or we can say a person who doesn't have proper knowledge still he/ she think that they are best and no one can replace them. It is only a sign of overconfidence so we should avoid this type of thinking and thought process instead of it we can say that yes we have knowledge but we also have to improve it day by day to enhance our skills and ability or should appreciate others also to achieve well in their life never underestimate yourself as well as others.

That's all I think.

Thank you.
