Lesson learned, or Newbie nonsense?

I think what my story is missing is a conflict bigger than my protagonist. I’m calling it the “world’s” conflict, and the stakes need to be higher than my character trying to get what she wants. The focus of the book is my character’s conflict, but it needs to be couched in this larger story line. I’m missing that right now, and I think that is what is dysfunctional about my plot.
