1. is the best.
2. has a different sense. (Learning how is different from learning that.)

But I suggest you use ... and how to find it within themselves.

Why do you feel you need to use "the word"? I think you should simply say the true meaning of confidence. Readers will learn what confidence truly is, not simply what the word means.
