Santiago faces a few conflicts throughout the story. Initially, the conflict is man vs man, in that everyone around him said be dream could never be fulfilled. They told him it was unrealisitic, even crazy.

Santiago's next conflicts were internal. He was afraid to leave and follow his dream for fear of hurting those he loved. He also had a fear of failure..... of losing what he already had.
