Oprah Winfrey exudes confidence as she poses with her legs spread wide and her feet bare in the yard of her Maui home for the new April cover of O magazine, which is all about confidence.

But even Oprah admits there are certain things she doesn't feel great about.

"I am confident in most things that don't require mathematical or technological skills. In those areas, I'm not just challenged - I'm functionally illiterate. I have actually had to call for help to get my TV turned on. (Input, schminput.)," Oprah writes in the What I Know For Sure page.

"On the other hand, when it comes to matters of the heart, emotion, connection, and speaking in front of large audiences, I thrive. A genuine vibrational thing happens between me and whoever I'm engaged with: I can feel them and sense that they are vibing right back with me."

She adds, "Ultimately, we all want the same thing: a fulfilled life. And the confidence to be wholly, completely ourselves."
