Confidence is the belief that you can do it. But In overconfidence, the belief is so much that the person ignores that he can be wrong too.

In my opinion, confidence can take you at higher level.

But overconfidence will bring to ground once a time. If we have overconfidence it will spoils us.

In my opinion, Confidence is like saying ' I think I am a deserving candidate for the job' whereas someone with overconfidence would say something like 'I think I'm the only best candidate available for the job'.

According to me, confidence and overconfidence both are feelings which shows path to future, where one refers to climb the 100th floor through steps, and other refers to jump from ground floor to 100th floor without any materials.

Confidence always provides us with knowledge and positive wave but overconfidence always messed your work abilities. For example, I can do this work this is confidence and I am only a person who can do this work this is the overconfidence.

Sir, according to me, confidence is an inner feeling which always speaks to us that "you can do it ". But overconfidence always says that "you only can do it. " And due to this ego will increase in Hart and will spoil our life.

Sir according to my views, confidence is best way to check our potential and overconfidence is the worst way. By overconfidence we can lose everything in our life but with confidence we can achieve everything.

There is a thin line between confidence and overconfidence. When you think that you have such potential to do that work, that's your confidence.

And if you think that You are the only one who can do that work easily and nobody can do that as you can, then that's your overconfidence.

So, confidence is good but overconfidence is not good. Overconfidence just messed your work.

According to me, there's a slight difference between confidence and overconfidence. When you think that, ' you can do it', this is confidence and when you think that, 'only you can do it', this is overconfidence. Overconfidence is when you start underestimating other people.

To my knowledge no one in this world knows everything, so confidence is the one I keep learning to know everything and over confidence is the one I know everything. These things will reflect the positive and negative side of a person.

Confidence is a positive side of any person on the other hand overconfidence is the negative side of a person. Confidence helps to learn anything easily but overconfidence doesn't give to learn anything.

Because an overconfident person thinks that he/she knows everything or without he/she anyone doesn't know that particular thing.

"I can do this work" - confidence.

"Only I can do this work" - overconfidence.

Confidence is more about respecting the potential of yourself while overconfidence is about disrespecting the potential of others.

Being confident helps you reach your goals while overconfidence takes you further away from your goals.

After taking some initiatives, realizing that the desired task is possible is confidence. Assuming that someone will help and makes our life better without even taking a risk is overconfidence. Though it works out for fewer people.

According to me, confidence is something with which you boldly or fearlessly face or tackle a situation.

And over-confidence is tackling a situation without proper knowledge about it.

Confidence tells our positive attitude and overconfidence tells that over attitude. Confidence in oneself is required to achieve something but overconfidence makes oneself into a different way of approach. Confidence is good for everything but with overconfidence, one can not reach heights.

The difference is only in the belief of a person, both come from hard work but being overconfident towards something needs more passion towards it than a person can think of. It's not bad you know being overconfident, it only depends on individual perception of things as I said earlier.
