Open Downloaded App that is not from the Mac App Store

I am trying to open Transmission from which I've downloaded outside the Apple App Store. However, it keeps showing the error and I can't open it. I want to know if there's a way to open such applications even if its not downloaded from the App Store. If there is a possible way please let me know. The error I got is shown below:

"Transmission" can't be opened because it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store.

Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store.

Open Downloaded App that is not from the Mac App Store

This is the default setting that has made by Apple. They only allow apps to run if downloaded from the App Store. To fix this, go to your System Preferences. And then go to Security & Privacy option under the Personal tab. Then under the General tab, unlock the "Click the lock to make changes" option and then tick "Anywhere" under the "Allow applications downloaded from" menu. Then try running the app you downloaded outside the App Store and see if it will work.
