Sell yourself short

1. John constantly gives more credit to others when he actually does most of the work. I wish he'd stop selling himself short.
2. Stop selling yourself short, Jane. Let them know it was your idea.
3. Sue, you're nice, but you're selling yourself short if you let them take credit for something you did.
4. She should've gotten the promotion, but she keeps selling herself short. They don't know how talented she is.
5. He sold himself short again. He didn't mention the fact that he'd had a couple of exhibitions of his work.

When you sell yourself short, you undervalue yourself or your abilities; you don't give yourself credit, and you don't let others give you credit.
