How Do I Become Godly?

Description What does it mean to be godly? How does a person attain godliness?

Bible Passage 1 Timothy 4:7-9 
7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
