How to use "Overconfidence" in context?

Overconfidence is the belief that one's own abilities are superior to those of others and that one is not likely to be wrong. This can lead to overestimation of one's capabilities and underestimation of the difficulty of the task at hand. Overconfidence can also lead to taking unnecessary risks, as one may feel that their skills will protect them from harm. The resulting behavior can be harmful not only to oneself, but to others as well.
