Rihanna fever is in the air. One of her best-known songs is Diamonds. If you want to learn how to be beautiful like a diamond in the sky, you should follow RiRi's advice to find the light in the beautiful sea and choose to be happy.

Here's how:

 - Pick a career based on your passion for the work, not the size of the paycheck.

 - Practice good health habits. You’re going to be in that body for a long time; make it last.

 - When opportunity knocks, answer with a resounding "Yes". Take a risk, even a leap of faith.

 - Get to know someone well before you marry him or her.

 - Travel more. Most people consider travel adventures to be the high points of their lives.

 - Express yourself now. Tell the people you love that you love them. Settle arguments and mend grudges right away. You never know how much time you have.

 - Live by the mantra, "Life is short", because even if you live to be 100, you’re going to think it is.

 - Choose to be happy. Recognise that it is a choice.

 - Stop worrying. Most of the things you’re worried about won’t happen.

 - Enjoy simple pleasures. Take time to smell and drink the coffee, listen to the birds and find the beauty in the world around you.
