Also by doing this part like what Mithun expressed will the Gear Box get worn out?

If you are new to driving, then I suggest you practice shifting gears with the engine switched off to get a feeling how the lever moves through the gate. When driving, do not shift in a hurry as that will lead to you missing gears (shifting into 2'nd instead of 4'th gear). You need to shift gears in one fluid seamless motion. The jerk that you experience is not because of not shifting correctly but rather letting go of the clutch abruptly.

The gearbox and engine will be put under undue strain when you shift into lower gears at higher rpm. Almost all cars come with synchromesh gearboxes that make shifting a breeze. A little bit of practice and you will be shifting like a pro.
