Why is confidence important?
Confidence is very important in life. Confidence is to believe in yourself, recognize your value. If you are confident, then people also believe in you. Confidence is attractive. The biggest reason for success helps to connect well with others. A confident person usually feels happy. Your self-confidence creates a positive attitude. And with a positive view, not only do you create your bright future, but you are also a source of inspiration for others.
Difference between confidence and overconfidence
People often confuse overconfidence with confidence, but there is a thin line separating the two. Confidence is when we feel sure about our actions and take the right decision. We believe in our ability to do something and believe in ourselves. On the other hand, overconfidence is overconfidence in our abilities, ignoring the fact that we can be wrong. It is rooted in feelings of insecurity; when we want to hide self-doubt, we become very confident. Overconfidence often leads to arrogance and poor decision making.
Confidence Vs Overconfidence Example
“I can do it!” They are confident.
“Only I can do it!” This is overconfidence.
Overconfidence occurs when a person believes he is right every time.
Here are some defining features to help you differentiate between a confident and very confident personality:
Characteristics of a confident personality
- You are not trying to prove anything.
- You do not want recognition or seek the attention of others.
- You are not afraid, to tell the truth.
- You show courage, and people automatically notice.
- You are true to yourself.
- They focus on their strengths.
Characteristics of a very confident personality
- You like talking more than listening.
- You have gone out to prove your point to others.
- You are highly concerned about what people think of you.
- You cannot accept your weaknesses or failures.
- You are not always your authentic self around others.
This thus leads to overconfidence effects, which encourages us to overestimate our knowledge and ability to make some predictions. Planning confusion is an example of overconfidence, where we overestimate the time to complete a task.
Effect of overconfidence in the workplace
- It is important to understand the difference between confidence and overconfidence, especially when you want to build professional relationships and achieve success in the workplace.
- When you have overconfidence, then you feel you are better than others and your decision is final. This has the effect that you will take unnecessary risks because you want to prove your point.
- You feel that you have control over the situations. This is especially harmful when you are in the business of investing; you over-evaluate situations and fail to accurately assess risk factors.
- You underestimate the time to complete a task. You may procrastinate and cannot meet your deadline.

In cricket, I was very practising and professional. While cricket was new for Bhuvan and his teammates, there was a lot of confidence in Bhuvan and he continued to Motivate all his teammates and in the end, they won with enthusiasm and enthusiasm. If Bhuvan had not increased the confidence of his teammates, would he have won the match? Think! You may not get Bhuvan, but you can tell yourself that you can. You will. All is easy.

- Don’t Be panic when you make mistakes
If there is a human being, then it cannot be done, that he has made no mistake, If there is no mistake then he is not a human being. The biggest speaker also says something wrong while speaking, and immediately corrects his mistake or ignores it with some humour and continues his speech back with the same confidence. When we do not do any work just because we make a mistake, this is our Confidence Lose and we do not even try. So leave these things and do what you want to do. Try!

Why Does Confidence Decrease?
Our family, people around us, friends, relatives, etc—all influence our confidence. In fact, it is a mental cognition. When any negative reaction is done on any of our work or any Act, then our belief in ourselves (Believe) decreases and our mind starts to believe that ‘I cannot do this work’.
But when you are unsuccessful in some work, then you will get negative comments, but some people settle it in their mind so much that the feeling of negativity in them becomes home.
Even after listening to many failures). Even after listening to negative comments, they have the determination that I will be successful. Such people are full of Confidence.
