Hi

In the self-help book the author wrote:

If your thoughts are right kind, you will inspire confidence in those with whom you are dealing. As you gain the good will of others your confidence and strength will increase. You will soon learn the wonderful value of your thoughts and how serene you can become even when circumstances are the most trying.

Does "good will" mean here reputation? So if I gain reputation in other people's eyes, I'll become stronger and more confident?

The noun goodwill means:
1 friendly, helpful, or cooperative feelings or attitude : the plan is dependent on goodwill between the two sides | [as adj. ] a goodwill gesture.

As you gain the friendly feelings of others, your confidence and strength will increase.
As you gain the cooperation of others, your confidence and strength will increase.

Don't forget the comma!
