One of the things writers struggle with is keeping characters consistent throughout the piece while they work through their conflict to meet their goals.

There's so much to think about as your write your story arc, but without character growth, or change, you really don't have a story. One of the easiest ways I've found to plot or chart this arc is to use the GMC method, as taught by Deb Dixon. IMHO, this book should be on the shelf of every writer.
