Success is a concept which many of us can relate to, building a company from scratch before selling it for a price tag of $2.5 billion, now that is unique. Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, founder of Minecraft creator Mojang has shared his thoughts on Twitter regarding how his life has evolved after selling up to Microsoft.

So, he must be enjoying his life right? Not as much as you might think as it turns out, one Tweet which is below outlines his predicament.

Followed by this

If that does not cheer you up, this Tweet won’t either

Does he like his former work environment? Erm

This sounds to be a person who did not have a plan once he left Mojang but rather self-defeated, long-term successful entrepreneurs always envisage the next venture, what will be next? How do I make it happen? To say that there is no reason to “keep trying” is an individual missing a huge opportunity, he has a big check book in order to constructively invest in many an avenue.

The appearance of wealth and fame isolates individuals to a point, there have been many a report of a celebrity spiralling out of control, but, the human being works at its best when it has routine, something to work towards and to plan your day around. Relaxing on a beach with “famous people” is fun at first, but it does not occupy a mind. Therefore, the more you party, the more you dip into self-loathing and concentrate on your regrets and problems.

This following paragraph may sound as if I am simplifying his next tweet too much, to paraphrase his statement, he mentions that he “met a great girl, but she went with someone else” Well, if that is the case then I guess it was not the right relationship and something did not click. If someone likes you then it should be for you, not someone’s money, not their lifestyle, not how many cars they have, but you. If two people want to know each other purely on financial means, then that is not what true love is, but a polluted bought notion of it.

Oscar Wilde coined a famous phrase, “There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.” Markus ‘Notch’ Persson is caught in this paradox; a huge wealth is not all you need but direction, motivation and also who you have around you.
