Why doesn't my music sound compelling?

Been playing piano and guitar for near 10 years and recording for maybe half of that. Just can't figure out why every attempt at making music fails. Even when i decide to just stick with the usual chord progressions that everyone loves it sounds bland. When i try to pull out the more interesting sounding chords and scales it still is missing something. All the harmonies are cohesive and sound like music and what not, but just not compelling music. It always ends up too cheesy, childish sounding or too obvious in a way, as in unsurprising.
Maybe one of the worst parts is that it can take an entire day for me to come up with 1 minute of mediocre music. I don't think i'm lacking in technique or theory knowledge or anything like that.
Can't figure out why. Like maybe i have no soul or something. I don't want to believe i have no talent but man seriously what the heck.Please help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
