"I am right" shows your confidence.

"I am always right" shows your over confidence.

Confidence will give you courage and motivation to carry on with your work.

Over confidence will not let you work hard and will reduce your chances of getting success.

Sir, confidence is something that boosts us up in every critical situation that yes I can. And overconfidence is the thing that creates a superiority complex in us that I am above all.

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.

Nirmita Kumawat said: (Oct 2, 2018)  
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.

Confidence is all about your real capabilities. According to your determination, you could make yourself confident. Confidence is good. You should always be confident but overconfidence is like that which keeps us back, pulls down. When we think only I can do this I can make this, nobody is there like me, nobody can make this except me then what will happen! Nothing. It destroys us. People may fun of us. They may be sledging behind our back and which will pull us down.
