Confidence is an assessment whether the environment is sufficiently fertile for your effort to give you the success with the resources and abilities that you have. If you assessment makes you confident of success, that will spark motivation.
Motivation is an internal urge or force that make you put in the effort, to invest your time and resources, and to persist in sticking to the plan till the last minute in case of competitive events.
Overconfidence is described as arrogance by Prof Kanter. When the team management becomes arrogant, it neglects its team members. When a business team becomes arrogant it neglects its customers. The early signs of failure are ignored and the corrective action is not taken in time.
What gives success?
Remember, it is not confidence. It is your work. Overconfidence kills your motive to work. Confidence provides motive to work and succeed.
In the recently concluded BJP National Council meeting both Narendra Modi and Advani emphasized the importance of booth level workers to contact and make the voter favouring the party actually vote for the party in the election booth. Advani specifically mentioned the national council members not to become overconfident. He said confidence is required for resolve but overconfidence results in failure. Has Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi said anything about it? We need to find out.
