Pick a weak Cauchy sequence and call its corresponding sequence in the double dual then for any we have, since Cauchy sequences are bounded, and by the uniform boundednes principle we get that is a bounded sequence, by reflexivity this gives a weakly convergent subsequence, call it and a limit, call it . Now just use the estimate and if are large enough then the result follows.
