Let $$R$$ be a ring with $$1_R$$. If $$M$$ is an R-module that is NOT unitary then for some $$m \in M$$, $$Rm = 0$$.

I'm pretty sure $$Rm = \{ r \cdot m \mid r \in R \}$$. While M being not unitary means that $$1_R \cdot x \neq x$$ for some $$x \in M$$. I'm thinking this problem should be an obvious and direct proof but I can't see it.
