This is very straightforward. You get missions from the bulletin board within Station Services in a space station or outpost. Simply accept and complete 50 of these missions.

Missions vary from the following:
Transporting cargo to another location
Smuggling illegal cargo to another location
Carrying data files from to another location
Mining certain minerals
Taking out certain targets (other ships)
Charitable donations
Going to another system and bringing back a certain commodity

The easiest missions are the ones asking for a charitable donation, as all you need to do is agree to do it, and you give the current station whatever donation it asks (it's usually a small amount, a few thousand credits, so obviously whether you can do it depends on your own balance).

The next easiest would be the simple data or cargo haulage missions.

Smuggling is next easiest although these do carry a risk of fines if you're scanned with the cargo (you can get scanned at space stations, or in space itself if stopped by an authority vessel. You don't get scanned at outposts except military outposts).

Any mission which involves cargo does carry the risk of being stopped and attacked by pirates.

The missions which ask you to destroy another ship are more hazardous. Firstly, you need a FSD Inderdictor to pull the target out of Supercruise, to enable you to attack them. Obviously, they will fight back so you may get destroyed yourself, especially if the target is being accompanied by other ships. You may also incur a bounty if the target is not a criminal, which means further risks of being attacked yourself.

Finally, the mining also requires specific equipment, I can't remember all of what is needed off-hand as I've never carried out any mining myself.
