“300” – Noah Melan

“Purpose is defined as the reason for which something is done or created.

I believe that each and every of us have a sacred call in our life.


We all have a deep down tug.  

Something that makes our heart skip a beat and gets our mind racing with dreams.  

Possibilities and vision.

This goes hand in hand with two of the ultimate questions in life:

“What is my purpose and how in the world do I pursue it?”

For me, my faith and my music has always been a constant.

Every single morning I thanked God for my family and another day of life. Sitting with a guitar in my hand,  playing until my fingers bled,  was also a constant.

Ideas  like architecture or journalism. Things I knew deep down weren’t me.

I tossed and turned at night fearing that I would never accomplish what I was put on this earth to do.

One night, during my senior year, I led worship at a church event.  

The pastor took me aside saying, “You have a gift, and don’t you ever stop using it.”


At that moment, hiding right in plain sight, I found my purpose.

We all have a call within us that needs answering.

You can’t shake it.

You can’t fool it.

You can’t hide it.

This world is desperately waiting for YOU to fearlessly pursue the one unique purpose that has been placed only within your heart.

Never give up on that incessant tug deep within your soul.

From this moment forward, resolve to live intentionally.

Live on purpose.”

"To be there when the light goes on." Those few, powerful words, succinctly sum up my quest as a coach. That is really what it is all about. This is precisely what drives me. To have good fortune shine upon me briefly so that I can be present at that very moment. The instant of revelation. When the years of heavy lifting results in it making sense for someone else. The almost audible “click”, followed instantaneously by an unmistakable incandescence. The illumination that can only accompany accomplishment. To see bean in the eyes, the look on the face, a change in stature and the air of confidence overtake and envelope the protoge, the “project” or the late bloomer. That is why I am in it. There may never be a stat for achieving those kinds of victories. But it is by far the most important “w” I will ever achieve.
