Attitude or Circumstances?

Is trying to change other people’s attitude the right way to change circumstances, situations and conditions?
Or is it trying to change circumstances, situations and conditions the right way to change other people’s attitude?
I think there is no precise answer to those questions.
If a tyrant is trying to change the attitude of a morally upright person for his selfish reasons, then it’s obviously wrong.
If an irresponsible person refuses to change his attitude so that his circumstances might change, that’s probably worse.
Trying to change circumstances, situations and conditions to change other people’s attitude will work for a few but not for many.
