I think this title is contentious because obviously you could answer, “Well it’s already proven. Others have tried it and it didn’t work. Science has proven it doesn’t work. Why would it work for me?”
I’d find your answer reasonable. After all, the probability of you making it work after so many others have failed is arguably small. But get this. The possibility of YOU being able to do it remains. No one else is YOU. Can you argue with that?
American engineer, physicist and inventor Robert H. Goddard (1882-1945), who is credited as one of the founding fathers of rocketry that would usher in the space age is quoted as saying:
“as in the sciences we have learned that we are too ignorant to safely pronounce anything impossible, so for the individual, since we cannot know just what are his limitations, we can hardly say with certainty that anything is necessarily within or beyond his grasp.”
How will you know what is within your grasp until you test it, make a real effort, and prove it for yourself?
