Hello,

Please, would tell me if my sentence is right?

Here is the sentence:
If I'm an actor in my next life, I will decide carefully on the movies I'm going to play in.

Thank you very much,

It is correct (if you believe it might happen in your next life).

1. If I'm an actor in my next life, I will decide carefully on the movies I'm going to play in.
2. If I were to be an actor in my next life, I would decide carefully on the movies I'm going to play in.
3. If I'm an actor in my next life, I think I'll be a bit more careful about the kind of films I appear in.

To supplement the previous comments:

#1 By using the present tense in the IF clause, and the future tense in the main clause, the speaker gives an impression of 'immediacy'. Since the question of whether or not there will be a 'next life' is by no means settled (at least, in native-English cultures), the statement therefore has a 'faintly whimsical' air. You would use #1 in ordinary conversation.

#2 By using 'if I were to' in the IF clause, and 'would' in the main clause, the speaker gives an impression of 'remoteness'. In conjunction with the phrase 'in the next life', the statement has an 'extremely cautious' air. The speaker seems quite uncertain as to whether he would want to be an actor, in his next life.

#3 I add this as one among many possible 'colloquial' BrE versions.

Hi all:

If + Present Tense..., S + will/shall + V...

The sentence is meaning that you can do it possibly

How to do you know your next life

Maybe you can be used “If I were to ..., I ...”
