    You have on your mind that you will get scolded that is why you are tensed.

    You have in your mind that you will get money that is why you are happy.

    Are these sentences correct as well?

    Those are run-on sentences. You need a semi-colon or full-stop before 'that' to separate them.
    "Tense" is an adjective by itself.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    You have on your mind. That you will get scolded that is why you are tense. (Google shows that "tense" is a verb as well. Is it wrong to say "why are you getting tensed or she was very tensed?)

    You have in your mind. That you will get money that is why you are happy.
