Juggling so many companies at the same time can become a Herculean task.

Even though Musk is now valued at around $16 billion, his path has been one of extreme ups and downs. Responding to some questions about his life on Twitter, the Telsa Founder responded with frankness that we have not seen when it comes to other heavy weights from the technology community.

In a series of tweets Musk described why not many would want to trade places with him. Musk tweeted that his life has had its fare share of 'great highs, terrible lows and unrelenting stress'. On being asked about the latter two, Musk explained that "take the pain and make sure you really care about what you're doing", which by his own admission is not that easy to do.

Musk even claimed that he was bipolar while reply to a tweet. However, he clarified in the next tweet that his condition cannot be medically termed as bipolar. He added that "Bad feelings correlate to bad events, so maybe real problem is getting carried away in what I sign up for". Finally, Musk said that taking on so many stress-inducing responsibilities is his own fault.

These tweets come right after the official launch of Tesla's most affordable car the Model 3. Musk spoke about how the following months are going to be hell after possible manufacturing problems.
