Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Obstacle"

The meaning of "Obstacle" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa A great obstacle to happiness is to anticipate too great a happiness.(korean)?
A: Happiness doesn't work like this, but pretend that every time we felt happy, we could measure it with "happy points."

If you expect an experience will give you 30 happy points, but it actually gives you 50 happy points, then you'll feel great! You'll be even happier than you expected.

But, if you expect a situation to give you 100 happy points, but it only gives you 50 happy points, you feel a bit disappointed. You actually won't feel very happy at all, because it's less happiness than you expected.

Both situations gave you the same amount of happiness points, but your expectations about how many happiness points you *should* get had a big impact on how happy you actually felt. This proverb is saying that if we expect too many happiness points, we won't be able to appreciate the happiness points to do get.

Now to break down the English:
This grammar looks complicated but is actually pretty simple! It's "Noun is noun"

Noun 1 is "A great obstacle to happiness" = something that stops us from feeling happy. In this case, "great" means "big" not "good"

Noun 2 is "to anticipate too great a happiness." Same as a above, "great" means "big." So "too great a happiness" means "a happiness that is too big."

So you can rephrase this sentence as "Something that stops us from feeling happy is anticipating a happiness that is too big."

Hope that makes sense!
