    gain confidence by persuading

    Hello everyone,

    Here is a sentence from a book:

    After having acquired a firm gaze, you will gain confidence by persuading a friend to allow you to practice your gaze upon him.

    Do I understand correctly that the highlighted part means "you will gain confidence if you persuade a friend to allow you to..."?

    Thank you.

    That's what it says.
