    Question Help me! problem in reading and accepting Fullname

    So im having trouble, im just a beginner programmer and still learning. Im having trouble in reading my full name in just a single variable and some kind of authentication. this is my code by the way.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    
    int main(void)
    {
          char NAME_MINE1[40];
          
    void clrscr();
    
            system("CLS");
           printf("Enter Full name: ");
           scanf("%39s",&NAME_MINE1);
           
           if(NAME_MINE1=="Qwerty You Tube")
              {
                system("CLS");
               printf("Nice!");
                getch();
                go to Phase2;
               }
           else
               {
                system("CLS");
               printf("WRONG!");
    
    
                getch();
                system("cls");
                exit(0);
                }

    What im trying to do is:

    if i enter my full name i will be able to go on to the next statement/command but when i put on some name (which is not mine) i will automatically get an error and exit the program.

    If i type "Qwerty You Tube" EXACTLY and not just the first string before the whitespace i will be able to proceed but when i enter "Qwerty Tube You" or "Qazse Qop Queen" i will get an error and the program will exit.

    am i doing something wrong or what ? Is what i want even possible ? im so confused right now im seaching for answers for hours! and to no avail ( Please help me ((((((

    Please don't cross-post.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
