Victor Pope Jr. has realized that if he wants to improve as a person, he must first become aware of his weaknesses. He knows that his pride and temper are two of his biggest issues, and he’s determined to work on them. He also knows that he needs to learn to accept praise and to let people help him, since he struggles to tolerate criticism. Victor is determined to grow and become the best that he can be.
Victor Pope Jr. sometimes feels a conflict between his desire for social and professional success and his need for a stable, secure domestic life. He is deeply committed to both ideas and tries to reconcile their schedules and demands on him, but sometimes it feels as though he will never be able to find a balance. However, no job promotion will really satisfy him if he neglects his most intimate needs and desires. Although it sometimes seems easier to him to climb the rungs of the career ladder outside in the real world, if he merely sacrifices his domestic life, he is only trying to fool himself. He should accept the fact that his domestic life is the true basis and foundation of his development. All his career endeavors and success will be even more rewarding if they are supported by a safe, warm personal life.
