This question already has an answer here:

Prove that if $\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty z_n$ converges and there exists $\theta\in\mathbb{R}$ such that $|\arg(z_n)|\leq\theta<\frac{\pi}{2}$ for all $n\in\mathbb{Z^+}$, then it converges absolutely.

I tried invoking the convergence of $(z_n)$ to $0$, but couldn't find a second step or a route. Could someone give me some hints please?

Added later:

For all $n\in\mathbb{Z^+},z_n=\Re z_n+i\Im z_n$. Since $\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty z_n$ converges $\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty \Re z_n$ converges. But for all $n\in\mathbb{Z^+}$, $$\Re z_n=|z_n|\cos(\arg z_n)\geq|z_n|\cos\theta\geq0.$$ Now invoking the comparison test the convergence of $\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty |z_n|\cos\theta$ is immediate. Hence $\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty |z_n|$ converges, i.e. $\sum\limits_{n=1}^\infty z_n$ converges absolutely.
