Time, energy, motivation, and good tutorial. But tutorials on a programming language can only take you so far. It's most important to find something really interesting to work on. As your first project, you probably won't finish it, but that's OK. If you lose interest, that's OK too, as long as you've learned something from it.

A good way to start is probably to find some program that you can write an extension/addon for. That lets you start with some boilerplate code and grow from there rather than staring at a blank page in your text editor.

Experience, lots of experience. And knowing how to search for stuff. Becoming truly good usually means constant self-education.

I also recommend looking at a lot of code written by others. Being able to understand other peoples code is incredibly valuable. While it might be nice to start a project with a clean slate often it is more efficient to modify existing code to do what you want.

Do you have a type of game you like? Maybe someone here can recommend something you could mod.

To become a good programmer you have to be good in programming like C#, C++, Javascript, Html, Php etc.

I know everyone says "read a lot of code", well, I never did that, and maybe I'm not a good programmer, but I've not yet been fired for being bad..
My 1 cent; Program a lot, lots of small projects, a few larger ones, try to get over the 20kloc bump without drowing in your own complexity, if you can do that you're well under way..
just.. write write write... :)
