Default right foot/right hand layups

I haven't been playing ball that long. (about three years of pickup).
I noticed that I jump off of my right foot and shoot layups with my right hand also.
People are telling me that it's a bad habit, but I feel that I've made it work for me.
Is this something that's fundamentally wrong and needs to change? Or can I get by if i continue to play like this?

it only gets you to a point, then you will reach a time where your lack of mastery over the fundamentals will show and youll have to force yourself to learn from scratch if you want to continue to progress into a better player. in this example, if you shoot right hand layups off your right foot, your right hand cant extend as high into the air as it could if you took off of your left foot. as a result youll get to a point in time eventually where you will routinely play against athletic or tall players (or players that are BOTH) that will take advantage of this and block your layups everytime you come into the lane... so i suggest you get this bad habit fixed.

You'll also get more balance if you jump off the opposite foot. It'll also let you absorb more contact on your layups.

you can also reach higher and farther when you jump off opposite foot. There are times where I do it tho too just for whatever reason... but it's rare. you'll see in anywhere just not very often. Usually when nobody closes on a drive or something that unexpected.
