Challenges Can Be Opportunities for Gaining Character and Wisdom

Philipiansp 4:121-3, building character
Challenges in the Christian life may be the best tools for gaining character and wisdom...
“Don't wish it was easier; wish you were better.
Don't wish for less problems; wish for more skills.
Don't wish for less challenge; wish for more wisdom”
― Jim Rohn

Is this quote Scriptural? I think so with a few changes.

“Don't wish it was easier; learn to depend on God."
"For Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." 
2 Corinthians 12:10

"Don't wish for less problems;  pray for more character."
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." James 1:2

"Don't wish for less challenge; pray for more wisdom."
"I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:12-13

Dear Christians, let's pray for growth, godly character and wisdom.
