Is there a "connection"...?
You mean with the "Law of Attraction"?
Said "law" is nothing of the sort and is only a marketing gimmick, anyway.
But the underlying principle, of course, is fundamental to life in this world.
I am very glad you found it in what I assume - perhaps incorrectly - to be your own cultural and religious tradition.
Personally I think that not only is there no need to search for such fundamental truths in other cultures - it may very well be counterproductive.
I could explain at length, but I am pretty sure that anyone who is seriously interested in such topics will see why I think so (even if they don't
agree with me).
In fact, a certain school of thought that I respect enormously - the Sufis - have been advocating precisely that: that there is no need to convert
anyone (in their case, to Islam) because transcendent truths have been revealed in different cultures for a purpose.
(And for that, they were, at times, savagely persecuted, by the way.)
