It's not an easy feat to become a millionaire and surely, lots of lessons are learned along the way. For Entrepreneur Network partner Jack Canfield, reaching this personal milestone has brought much wisdom along the way. 

For instance, if you were feeling unhappy before you made a million dollars, chances are you will be unhappy after. To Canfield, an influx of money simply amplifies the person you already are. Even after Canfield made a lot of money from his book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul, he didn't immediately feel privileged or instantly happy. In fact, in the beginning of his success, he felt a bit uncomfortable, especially about how others might perceive his new wealth would change his personality.

Money also forced Canfield to consider his values and what he truly cared about. For Canfield, that meant supporting his concern for education and building a better world for his kids to live in.
