    Smile what's correct?

    what is the correct one?
    "You can't have a better tomorrow if you don't stop thinking about yesterday" or "You can't have a better tomorrow if you're don't stop thinking about yesterday"

    in my opinion, the first one is correct, isn't it?

    Yes, and you could also use unless you stop thinking.

    Hello Panca Dewi Savitri,

    I'd like to correct something about your question. If you have restricted number of options from which you can choose, in this case we've got two, then the question must start with "which" not "what". So, if we are to reword your question it will go like this;

    Which one (of the followings) is correct ? or,

    Which one is the correct one?
