Lessons from Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay. He's known for his outbursts and angry reactions in TV shows that he's hosted over the years including Hell’s kitchen and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. Audience and television viewers alike have often seen him shouting angrily and saying harsh words; however, there are also many lessons about success that you can learn from Gordon Ramsay. 

Gordon James Ramsay, Jr., or simply Gordon Ramsay, is a well-known Scottish restaurateur and chef who became a television personality. He owns several restaurants, food chains, and establishments that were awarded a total of 15 Michelin stars (Michelin stars are awards given to excellent and outstanding establishments).

Ramsay is also famous for presenting and hosting TV programs which are usually about competitive cookery and food. He is seen in TV shows such as The F Word, Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, and MasterChef. Almost always, people watching his programs will see him angry and furious, which makes him a scary person to some.

But despite such a strong and scary character, there are lessons you can learn from Gordon Ramsay when it comes to success. Check them out.

  • Admit that you are wrong. – If you are one of those people who turn on the TV and switch the channel to see Ramsay’s shows, then it is not new to you how this man goes after people that do not know how to admit their mistakes. In one episode of his programs, Ramsay almost had a fist-fight with a French Chef whom Ramsay knew committed a mistake, and yet the French guy would not admit it. Outraged, Ramsay walked out in order to avoid bigger arguments. The French Chef then loses his chance of learning from one of the world’s most successful restaurateurs.
  • People will always commit mistakes on their way to success. – It is impossible for anyone not to stumble or fall before he succeeds in his chosen career or path. If you look at the past of people who are very successful, you can see they have committed a lot of mistakes and have failed many times. But what made them who they are today is that they learned from those mistakes. This is what you can learn in Ramsay’s kitchen. Those who are working at his restaurant are not perfect people, and they will never be. From time to time, things go wrong, but they admit that they have made an error and then from there, Ramsay teaches them what they need to learn and how to learn from those mistakes. 
  • You will not always like other people’s ways and methods. – Whatever your job is, there are always a lot of people you have to mingle and work with. And sometimes, their ways are not likable or agreeable to you. That's normal. As you can see, in Ramsay’s TV shows he always comments and criticizes people harshly, and most would not like that. But instead of mumbling and grumbling about the way you hate other’s methods, you accept the bad news, learn from it, and think of ways what you can do to make things better next time.

Though many would say that Ramsay is an angry and scary person, you can learn a thing or two from him. The lessons he teaches the people in his show are stepping stones to success.
