I guess what over come obstacles mean is to have a mental toughness and enthusiasm saying yourself that you can do it even if the task is hard. This is thinking positively. This is why i guess overcoming obstacles was put up in the trait of optimism.

I think being optimistic tricks our mind into thinking that we can overcome the obstacle. If we are pessimistic to begin with, we basically think that we'll never overcome that obstacle, it's impossible, we can't do it, etc., etc. And since we think that everything we do will never solve that obstacle, we just don't try. However, if we are optimistic, we are open to all solutions to the problem.
I think overcoming obstacles is the result of being optimistic. If you are going through hard time, you could think positively and overcome the obstacles. I, for example, think optimistic and overcome many problems.
optimism is not only smiley faces everywhere...its more than that. i think that optimism is showing happiness but also determination and good thinking. If you think on the positive side of everything, then thats optimism. And like everyone else says, overcoming ovstacles are one of the important parts in optimism.
