I would argue this isn't confidence.

Confidence is knowing they will like you.

You can have confidence in a situation where no one likes you and you know they don't.

I interpreted this as thoughts before doing something. I mean, after the fact, if they don't like you, they don't like you, lol.

Edit: "I'll be fine if they don't", shows a level of doubt in your abilities, so to me, that's still a lack of confidence. I would say that's more of perseverance.

That’s actually arrogance-it’s impossible for everyone to like you.

Bingo! Arrogance is believing or thinking that everyone will like you.

Confidence is not caring what others think

Kind of. In my eyes, as a salesman, I very much care what the client thinks.

So I have to approach a situation knowing that they will like me, not "if they don't oh well"

Just my perspective though
