I think you just need to stop, slow down & try to look at things from a different angle.
Anyone can jump out of a car, stand at the side of the road & take a snap shot of a landscape, few people can take a stunning image of the same scene.
Try looking at everyday objects & thinking about how you can make an image from it or part of it. Would the way you expose it make it interesting or different from what most other people would shoot, what about an unusual angle, how would changing the depth of field affect the image? What about placing it against a complimentary coloured article or an opposing coloured item?
If you saw a lovely car parked in a field, most people would either go to the front or side & take a shot of it, what would you do? How many hundred shots could you get from it where others would get just one or two?
I think half the key is just slowing right down & thinking before you ever get the camera out of the bag.
Not that I'm, any good myself, you understand, but if I was struggling I think I'd try that approach.
