Abstract: Let $ V$ be a finite-dimensional module for the finite-dimensional Lie algebra $ L$ over a field of characteristic zero. If $ {V^\lambda } = \{ v \in V\vert\;{\text{all }}x \in L,{[x - \lambda (x)]^i}v = 0\;{\text{for some }}\} $ is nonzero, then $ \lambda \in {L^*}$ and is a character of $ L$. Moreover, the corresponding eigenspace $ \{ v \in V\vert{\text{all }}x \in L,xv = \lambda (x)v\} $ is nonzero and $ {V^\lambda }$ is an $ L$ submodule of $ V$.
