Theorem

Let $\struct {R, \norm {\,\cdot\,}}$ be a normed division ring.

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be a sequence in $R$.

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be convergent in the norm $\norm {\,\cdot\,}$ to the following limit:

$\displaystyle \lim_{n \mathop \to \infty} x_n = l$

Then $\sequence {x_n}$ is bounded.


Proof

Let $d$ be the metric induced on $R$ be the norm $\norm {\,\cdot\,}$.

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be convergent to the limit $l$ in $\struct {R, \norm {\,\cdot\,}}$.

By the definition of a convergent sequence in a normed division ring, $\sequence {x_n} $ is convergent to the limit $l$ in $\struct {R, d}$.

By Convergent Sequence in Metric Space is Bounded, $\sequence {x_n} $ is a bounded sequence in $\struct {R, d}$.

By Sequence is Bounded in Norm iff Bounded in Metric, $\sequence {x_n} $ is a bounded sequence in $\struct {R, \norm {\,\cdot\,} }$.
