How can people undo years and years of careless speech?
So they put in years and years of careful speech; it's a great thing. If they don't have years and years, so whatever they have. Because the rule is this: the Rambam gives us the rule, a man will remain forever what he was in his last moment. So your frame of mind at the end is what's going to cast the dye in eternity for you. And if you already learned to speak carefully, to appreciate this great gift and to utilize it properly, it will be a kaporo.
However, ashrei ish y'rei es Hashem, happy is the man who fears Hashem, and the Gemara says, b'odo ish, while he's still a man, while he's still young. That's the best time to start understanding these great principles.
Good Shabbos To All
