Is it possible to characterize completeness of a normed vector space by convergence of Neumann series?

If $X$ is a normed vector space and if for each bounded operator $T \in B(X)$ with $\| T\| < 1$, the operator ${\rm id} - T$ is boundedly invertible, does it follow that $X$ is complete? Context: ...
