It does influence one to think Col Brandon is speaking about his love, and his own success with Marianne, whereas as you point out, it could mean (and I think it does mean) that he means he'll have no chance of succeeding in influencing Marianne about Willoughby.
Very interesting post. Till now I 'was' thinking (probably fooled by the way col Brandon says it in the adaptations) that he was talking about himself.
