Over confidence is one of those trait that require controlling in order not to get your account wiped out. You will have to be yourself and not getting the best of what market is showing else you are losing more than you can count.
Loss is inevitable if you are trading in volatile market conditions. Part of the loss in overconfident trading. You have to trade with the possibility of the Forex market. And if one wants to make a 100% profit in this market of possibilities, it is never possible. Money management and risk management are not followed if it is overconfident. This is why many traders make losses.
Overconfidence can be really detrimental, but it is also bad if you don't feel confident enough. In the latter case, you might feel more fearful and stressed than you should. We have to find a middle ground where we have an adequate amount of self-confidence (which can be a challenge, of course).
