Your work is a reflection of you. If you want something different: improve yourself.
If you're not getting the results you're looking for, stop looking for better strategies. Instead, look inside. Try to continuously improve yourself, by expanding your vision, skills, and abilities.
If you're following someone else's tracks, where do you think those tracks will lead you? To your own destination or to theirs?
If you don't know who you are, you'll always try to be someone else. And thus, you'll never be the best. Your work will always be a cheap imitation. It will lack the feeling that produced the work or the idea.
When you are in love with the process, you seek feedback, mentoring, and coaching , even when you're at the top of your game.
You surround yourself with people who aren't afraid to tell you the truth. You avoid people who suck-up and only tell you what they think you want to hear.

Keep in mind this question: How much are you supposed to enjoy what you do? If you underestimate your answer, you'll tend to stop searching too early.
Liking your work does not mean doing what makes you happiest in this second, but what will make you most satisfied over a more extended period, like a week or a month. Your work should be your favorite thing to do. It should be something you admire.
